It is wrapped coconut leaves called janur The origin of the Ketupat or Kupat is from Java, Indonesia. The migration of peoples in the Malay Archipelago has made the Ketupat with many similarities in terms of its use. The tradition of making the Ketupat started a few generations ago and became mandatory in certain ceremonies as a main meal. This activity is considered as a culture since it has been passed down through generations and has become a symbol to identify the community. Ketupat requires technical skills to weave Its container, besides have its physical attractive characteristics and significant aesthetic values in shapes, lines, patterns and colors. Ketupat also has different symbolic meanings and has become beliefs in daily life. The effect of modern packaging has hit the tradition and threatens the art of weaving the Ketupat.
