Jakarta Post

Wedding decorations used to be the top-selling product for janur (palm leaf) sellers on Jl. Palmerah, West Jakarta, before the virus hit the city.

Janur weavers have suffered declining sales as the city has banned almost all gatherings, including wedding receptions, in a bid to contain the virus. But as Idul Fitri approached, the sellers found a new source of hope: producing containers for ketupat (rice cakes), a staple of Indonesian Idul Fitri celebrations.
