Factory Workers During the Dutch East Indies in 1940 - Indonesia in the Past Was Colorful

Colored documentation about the activities of workers or laborers in a factory in Java, during the Dutch East Indies era. The rapid economic development and industrial progress of the Dutch East Indies since the 1920s meant that many large-scale production factories were established, although they were still concentrated in Java and Sumatra. Capital owners, some of whom are foreign investors, recruit local indigenous people to work in their factories.

You can see a unique nuance in that era that is very rarely found nowadays, namely that most of the factory workers wore traditional clothes during working hours. Sarongs, jarik cloth, iket, even kebaya.

Location: Java, Dutch East Indies (Indonesia)
Director: J.H. Zindler
Year: Circa 1939-1941
