Silk batik shawl, 'Javanese Blue'

Item # 48894
Currently out of stock

Classic Javanese batik patterns inspire this elegant silk shawl. Yuni Kristina selects the kawung, an eight-pointed rosette once reserved for the sultan, and the triangular tumpal pattern for this design. These motifs once adorned men's formal clothing during the ancient Javanese Kingdom and symbolize dignity, self-respect and self-esteem.

Each motif is created by hand, as evidenced by the occasional pencil mark or slight color variations. Made in Indonesia.

Artisan Yuni Kristina

"I learned the art of batik when I was very young, since my mother is a batik artist in Java. She has been making batik at home for 23 years, while waiting each day for my father -- a fisherman -- to come home from the sea. As you can imagine, batik is a part of my life. I started experimenting with the technique when I was 13 years old, with mori textiles. Now I've learned to create different motifs and to work with other materials, such as silk. My mother still helps me a lot.

"My mother is my inspiration. She and I still design together, especially the floral and bird motifs that are typical in Pekalongan batik. My husband Rieckey also helps me a lot because he knows what people like abroad, and then I can focus on creating. I would like the batik of Bali to become well known around the world, since its beauty is outstanding.

"As a local Thai woman, I'm very proud of the fact that I can have the career that I love, and to be able to provide for myself and my family.
