A giant bag with a traditional Acehnese motif reportedly broke the Indonesian Museum of Records (MURI) for the largest bag with traditional motifs.

Initiated by the Bank Indonesia (BI) representative office in Lhokseumawe, Antara news agency reported that the giant bag was 3.25 meters in length, 1.5 meters in height and 1.4 meters in width.

MURI manager Andre Purwandono handed the record certificate to BI Lhokseumawe head Yufrizal on Sunday.

Andre mentioned the bag was considered a superlative piece as it was not only huge but also showcased traditional Acehnese motifs.

Meanwhile, Yufrizal explained that the bag was produced by Acehnese motif craftsmen who worked under the guidance of BI Lhokseumawe and it was created using 27-meter-long Prada fabric and 25-meter wires covered in fabrics.

Prior to this, the giant bag’s replica was presented in Gambong Expo 2017 in Lhokseumawe for the very first time. (jes/kes)
