This item was created

Yuni Kristina conjures classic Javanese batik patterns in mesmerizing shades of black, gray, and green. Stamped by hand on a luxurious silk shawl, they include the parang, or dagger, once exclusive to the courts of Surakarta and Jogyakarta. Formerly reserved for the sultan's use, flowers and the kawung, an eight-pointed rosette set within a square, rhombus or circle, complement the parang.

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