Home Bantul Banyusumurup Kris Crafts
Kris is a traditional weapon that is used mostly by Javanese royal families. About 40 craftsmen of Banyusumurup ( in Girirejo, Imogiri ) make this weapon.
Generally, they produce two kinds of kris, the ordinary one made for souvenir and the magical one made through processes of mysticism. The " kerangka " of kris is made of certain woods such as mahogany, sandalwood and sonokeling. These woods have beautiful texture and fragrant smell.
