Kawung Batik is the oldest batik motif. There are three versions of the origin of kawung batik: First, in the Mataram kingdom, there was a clean-hearted, very wise and polite young man who was the Duke of Wonobrodo. At the time of his appointment, he used Kawung batik. Second, there is a dark brown beetle that disturbs coconut trees. The shape of the Kwangwung beetle is an inspiration for the kawung batik motif, such as in Figure 2. The third version is the palm fruit or kolang kaling, which looks symmetrical like batik kawung. Various forms of kawung batik motifs exist in Indonesia. Archiving of kawung batik motifs can be done using turtle graphics, so storage is simpler and requires less memory. The results of kawung batik motifs raised with turtle graphics can be used as preliminary drawings before making batik by hand or with a stamp so that it is beneficial for batik productivity. In this paper, we present kawung picis, kawung bribil, and kawung sen. Each kawung batik motif is formed with a different turtle graphic equation. This can be seen in the pseudocode of each motif. If the shape is almost similar, then the pseudocode can be the same, but if the shape is different, then the pseudocode will also be different. The addition of the motif needs to be followed by another turtle graphic equation. As a comparison, canny edge detection can be used to obtain kawung batik motifs. With the turtle graph, all batik isen-isen can be described. Future studies of turtle graphics are expected to be applied to other motifs.
