Innovation in learning mathematics needs to be done so that the learning objectives of mathematics can be achieved effectively. One of the innovations that can be done is to utilize Javanese cultural products in learning mathematics. Besides being able to learn mathematics well, students can also get to know their culture which is slowly being forgotten. This study aims to describe the results of ethnomatatics exploration of Javanese culture that can be utilized in mathematics learning. The type of research used is exploration with an ethnographic approach. The results of the study show that there are many Javanese cultural products that have the potential for learning mathematics such as cultural products in the form of artifacts, traditional foods, traditional games, batik, and so on. If the Javanese cultural product can be utilized in mathematics learning well, it will create meaningful learning for students.
