Barbie Launches Collection of Batik Dolls

World doll brand, Barbie launched her latest collection Barbie Batik Kirana along with the National Batik Day celebration on October 2, 2018.

This collection inspired by Indonesian cultural diversity is the result of collaboration between Barbie and Iwan Tirta Private Collection.

The CEO of Iwan Tirta Private Collection, Widharmika Agung said, Barbie Batik Kirana is a way for children to love batik and also as a tool for promoting Indonesian culture abroad.

“Iwan Tirta Private Collection is pleased to collaborate with Barbie to improve understanding and foster love of batik among Indonesia’s young generation,” Agung said at the launch of Barbie Batik Kirana in Jakarta, Tuesday (02/10/2018).

There are two Barbie Batik Kirana that were launched, namely dolls with clothes motifs from Kawung Manis and Sawunggaling Latar Kopi Pecah. The choice of the motif is harmonized with the name Kirana which means light.

The motive of Kawung Manis illustrates the hope to always be wise, humble and remember the ancestors.

While the Sawunggaling Latar Kopi Pecah motif concludes the hope that a leader should be fair and maintain balance as a strong and kind person.

“From the meaning of Kirana, we adjust it to those motifs. So we tell about batik with Barbie,” explained Era Soekamto, Creative Director of Iwan Tirta Private Collection.

Barbie Batik Kirana “Kawung Manis” consists of two pieces of clothing, namely white sleeveless tops and batik skirts with “Kawung Manis” motifs. One set contains a necklace, bag and a pair of shoes.

Whereas Barbie Batik Kirana “Sawunggaling Latar Kopi Pecah” consists of a black A-line-shaped dress without straps in batik patterns. One set contains a pair of earrings, a necklace and a pair of shoes.

Barbie Batik Kirana is sold at a price of Rp.299,900 in all Barbie and Iwan Tirta Private Collection outlets. (bas)
