Kartini, a Javanese princess and heroine, sports traditional Javanese  wedding couture. An Indonesian Muslim, she lived only from 1879-1904,  but she had a tremendous influence in her short life and is highly  honored in Indonesia today (Indonesia being the world’s most populous  Muslim-majority country). An early feminist, she established a school  for girls in her own home, and had many schools established in her name after  her death.  The wedding outfit is typical of that worn by Javanese  Muslims to this day. This is classic Muslim garb.
