Item # 38870
Currently out of stock
The charm and elegance of Javanese batik artistry inspire the design of this set of bamboo trays by Indah and Indra. They select classic patterns such as cecek (dotted) and buketan or flower motif, which features flowing lines. The eight-pointed rosette or kawung patterns were formerly reserved for sultans, while Truntum, adorning the handles, stands as a symbol of awakening of love.

Legend has it there once lived a queen who had long enjoyed her king's love. She began to feel neglected when the king took a new mistress, so to forget her sadness and loneliness, she queen began to do batik. She designed a pattern featuring stars in a dark sky, and in her loneliness, the stars became her intimate friends. The queen's batik so impressed the king, he fell in love with the queen again.
