This international symposium aims to celebrate the 30th coronation anniversary of Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono X based on Gregorian Calendar, and to recall history, culture, and knowledge, from the Javanese manuscripts related with the Royal Court of Yogyakarta.
The merchandise set comprises notebook, printed cotton tote bag, vegetable tanned leather book cover, engraved pen, and bookmark. Each one (except the pen) has the light brown & grey color.
