Jagalan Silver

About

(under construction)
Jagalan silver adalah usaha yang ditekuni oleh karang taruna desa jagalan yang bergerak dibidang seni kerajinan perak. Usaha ini dimulai dengan keprihatinan anak-anak muda desa jagalan dikarenakan usaha perak saat ini hanya dimiliki oleh pasar-pasar besar, sementara pengrajin perak yang tidak memiliki pasar yang luas tidak bisa memasarkan usahanya hingga akhirnya mereka memutuskan untuk mengakhiri usahanya dibidang perak dan berpindah ke usaha yang lain. Dari sinilah jagalan silver mulai diluncurkan dengan tujuan membantu pemasaran pengrajin perak melalui dunia maya di pasar nasional bahkan sampai ke pasar internasional. Semoga usaha ini bisa membantu meningkatkan perekonomian pengrajin perak.

Jagalan Silver craftsmanship

Jagalan Silver craftsmanship, Jagalan Silver, is a silversmith community in Kotagede, the capital city of the Mataram Kingdom. Since the 10th century, Kotagede has been famed as the “Silver city” where most of the families have a silversmith who serves for the royal. Each handmade-jewelry is the showcase of the craftsmanship inherited from the Jagalan ancestors.

By the Community, For the Community

The biggest wish of the old silversmith is to pass on their traditional skills. Their income has been declining and it’s so little now the younger generations could not see any prospects from the career as a profession. 

The vision of the community is to form a silversmith cooperative to complement the traditional craftsmanship with contemporary marketing. This project, which is facilitated by Arkom and Asia Sense Tour, kick started the collaboration between the local youths and silversmiths in Jagalan. The profits generated will not only bring rises in their income but part of the profits will be allocated to set up a Community Development Fund in Jagalan.
