As it develops, nowadays tapis is not only made by the owners of the culture origin but also supported by various ethnic groups in Lampung as Lampung is a multi-ethnic area whose majority of the population is inhabited by ethnic of Javanese. The changes in the political era gave rise to innovations and changes. As the result, the weaving of tapis is currently developing in Javanese villages while in the villages of Lampung, it experiences a drastic reduction. The interest of Lampung youth to make tapis weaving has declined considerably. Business ventures of tapis have been developing in Javanese villages in Lampung. As a business venture, people tend to adapt the motifs of tapis to the desired motifs of the market. This research applied ethnographic methods with a qualitative approach. The data collection is obtained by in-depth interview and observation techniques. The data analysis was done by triangulation. The results showed that there were a lot of elements of Lampung culture experienced reduction and even extinction especially in areas where Lampung ethnic population is minority. However, Lampung tapis became one of the core cultures that was difficult to become extinct. Even though there were fewer women in the Lampung family weave tapis, but as a symbol and pride of culture, the meaning was not lost. Many tapis weaving businesses were run by business ventures in Javanese villages. It means that tapis becomes an artefact or cultural product that survives with innovations from artisans to attract tourists.
