Ulos Or Not Ulos

At first I thought these Osborn shoes are using Indonesia's Ulos textile...

I don't think so, D.
Coz' there's a different pattern on it.
Maybe other Indonesian Textile...

Sayang kenapa bukan orang Indonesia sendiri yg kepikiran buat mempopulerkan ulos, sebagai org Indonesia sy malu -___-

Never thought of ulos as modern fashion item before.. it's underrated compare to batik, no? Thanks for sharing.

All Osborn shoes are made in Guatemala, and all the woven fabric is 100% Guatemalan produced directly from cultural ethnic Guatemalan textile artistry.

I'm proud because as a Bataknese and also Indonesian, there are some people from outside Indonesia who love to use Ulos and the other Indonesian textile for the material of their own products, especially those fashionable shoes =D.

But I feel insulted cause there are a lot of Indonesian who doesn't like to use the local products, and they prefer wear the imported products!
