Talk about Blangkon, some time ago I got an order from one of the loyal clients across the country, namely six mondolan Warok called Blangkon warok. Blangkon headgear which is made from distinctive patterned piece of cloth and used by men as a complement of typical Javanese clothes. For those of you who are curious about the continuation of Blangkon Ponorogo or Surakarta, let me follow this article.
Basically Blangkon form according to Wikipedia, “Blangkon divided into four models of blangkon Ngayogyakarta, blangkon Surakarta, blangkon Kedu, and Blangkon Banyumasan. For some types of blangkon anyone use the ridge on the back blangkon. This bulge signifies the man’s haircut that often tie their long hair at the back of the head, so that part is sticking in the back blangkon. “
But this time I just want to explore about the differences Blangkon Surakarta and Ponorogo, where blangkon area has a different shape that is characteristic of the bulge and the taillights. Blangkon Ponorogo models have a bulge on the back of the head, almost like a hair bun on veiled women today. While Blangkon Solo models, average Tepes/slim alias does not have a bulge like a model of Ponorogo.
Investigate a calibration, the existence of an inference by myself and supported by the sources that I found on goggle, that the citizens of Solo had already been familiar with the science of hair clippers and hair is thin / neat. It appears the possibility of the arrival of foreign nations, especially to Indonesia Solo by bringing the influence of hair clippers. So there is a form of neatness in the development of the fashion world at that time, the term trend blangkon without the bulge.
While in Ponorogo, citizens had not yet familiar with the science of hair clippers. As a result came the front man behind blangkon which describes a form of hair was coiled (circular belt) or called mondolan. According to Roxburgh Mbahkung Kusnin blangkon craftsmen (84), blangkon Mondolan Ponorogo original tie it all. In antiquity, most residents had long hair and the way Ponorogo blangkon wearing, long hair be tied strongly before using a hair tie, then covered with a cloth blangkon joined by a strong bond that can not easily be separated.
Well, today has been found blangkon-blangkon who stay put. There mondolan shaped, some are ordinary. This is due to ease of use. And most people today have short hair and neat. Even if there are long-haired, may rarely be used as models of the original mondolan antiquity. Development trends have shaped the style of each region blangkon.
How about a model blangkon in your place? if anyone has any similarity with the above two cities?
This story, which the story …
