Abstract
Local wisdom is one of the special values of a region that makes the region has a uniqueness that is not owned by other regions. One of them is weaving cloth produced by Krowe Sikka that is very different from other weaving cloths in the Maumere region and those outside the Maumere region. Krowe Sikka weaving cloth produced by women of Krowe Sikka descent has special characteristics compared to other tribes in the Maumere region. The motives of the weaving cloth can have different economic selling points because of their uniqueness and value elements contained therein. This can be one of the added values of regional economic development that can be done by women in Sikka Krowe. Many weaving works produced by women in Sikka Regency, especially Sikka Krowe is one of the economic development opportunities that can be done by local governments to develop the regional creative economy. So that local wisdom owned by the area will not be lost with time and can produce economic value for the community in particular and additional income for the region in general. In this case, the role of the local government is very important to always develop the small scale business of the community which is currently in the region most residents carry out manual and traditional selling processes of the weaving cloth, so many of the weaving products of Sikka Krowe women only get low prices because they need to fill daily needs. In this research, it is expected that the local wisdom of weaving cloth can be seen in the development of the regional economy.
