KEBAYA CLOTHING FOR KARTINI'S DAY


Kartini's Day is to commemorate Raden Ajeng Kartini, a prominent Javanese and an Indonesian national heroine. Born on April 21, 1879, she is known as a pioneer in the area of women's rights in Indonesia. Wearing kebaya is one of Kartini's day tradition for celebrated her birthday at April, 21.  
For that celebration, dozens of female surfers wearing Javanese long-sleeved kebaya blouses ride a wave Sunday during the Kebaya Surf Culture Exhibition on Kuta beach, Bali. The event was held to commemorate Kartini Day, which falls on April 21. Some foreigners also took part, wearing sarongs and batik. 
Of course they did not wear 'jarik' such as common women but they wear sarong as usually they wear after swimming. The picture above was taken from The Jakarta Post (http://www.thejakartapost.com).
