Additionally, the team supplied consumable materials, such as various types of fabric and canvas, as the media for creating eco-printed products.

The team also assisted the KSM in marketing and financial administration. The KSM members were trained to record their equipment inventory and daily transactions.

This community service activity, which lasted from March to November 2021, aims to assist KSM Tegal Duwur in product diversification innovation to compete with existing eco-printed products in the market.

Previously, in 2020, the Behavioral Accounting RG provided assistance in this village by conducting training on eco-printed fabric production and supplying various equipment and materials for eco-print production.

Ecoprint is a technique of imprinting patterns on media using natural materials. It is an easily applicable technique and the results can be used as raw materials for clothing or other craft items such as umbrellas, fans, book covers, and more.
