There is a narrative that states that one of the new IDR75,000 wore traditional Chinese clothes.
However, it was confirmed that the traditional clothes did not come from China, but the traditional Tidung clothes, North Kalimantan.
This narrative is busy circulating on social media, one of which comes from a question on the Twitter account @ Rianaaa_na09.
The account questions the origin of traditional clothes.
Then there is another account that answers that traditional clothes come from China.
However, currently, the account owner @ Rianaaa_na09 locks his account.
The narrative about Chinese traditional clothes was then continued by an anonymous account @ 2nd_NN4y4r4.
Again, the traditional clothes are said to have originated from China.
Meanwhile, on the Bank Indonesia website, there is an explanation of the meaning of photos of children in regional clothes displayed on the 75th Anniversary of Independence Commemoration of the Republic of Indonesia.
This is part of the theme ‘Strengthening Diversity’.
Pandu’s friend of North Kalimantan, Prayoga Bayu, emphasized that the traditional clothes in the new money were the traditional clothes of Tidung, North Kalimantan.
