Indonesia is called an archipelagic country for a reason. Our homeland is the largest archipelagic country in the world which has more than 17,500 islands which are almost entirely inhabited by thousands of various ethnic groups. It is filled with a diversity of cultures, traditions, languages, and different customs. Every culture has its own characteristics and uniqueness, both in terms of art, clothing, music, dance, and daily lifestyle. One of the very distinctive and important cultures in the life of the Indonesian people is the work of textiles. Many types and varieties of textiles are scattered throughout Indonesia and each has its own beauty and philosophy behind it. Batik is one of the country's most popular textiles and has made it to the international market. It can be seen that currently batik cloth is not only used as office or school uniforms, but also worn for various other events.

Textile and textile product industry players admit that they are still under pressure, as export demand is sluggish. In fact, this condition will last until next year. Many garment factories have collapsed due to this decrease in foreign demand. In Bisnis records on Tuesday (8/11/2022), as many as 64,000 textile industry workers operating in West Java Province were reported to have been laid off (PHK). In addition, 18 companies were also reported to have closed. A garment factory that was recorded as having collapsed due to reduced demand from outside, PT Tuntex Garment Indonesia, a textile factory that produces the Puma brand, was forced to lay off 1,163 of its workers because they were unable to pay wages.

The Ministry of Industry (Kemenperin) continues to boost the performance and competitiveness of the textile and textile product (TPT) industry in order to boost the national economy. One of them is by increasing the competence of human resources in the industrial sector through assessor training activities. It is known that in the first quarter of 2023, the contribution of the textile and apparel industry to the growth of the non-oil and gas processing industry was 6%. "The textile industry is one of the sectors that receives development priority, in accordance with the Making Indonesia 4.0 roadmap. Therefore, strategic efforts are needed for its development, including through increasing the competence of its workforce," said the Head of the Industrial Human Resource Development Agency (BPSDMI) Ministry of Industry, Masrokhan in a written statement, Monday (15/5/2023).
