Details

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.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Yuni uses traditional batik processes such as canting and stamping to create her unique designs. These techniques have been handed down for generations and are among the characteristics that distinguish the art of batik. The importance of this traditional Indonesian art was acknowledge with the 2009 inclusion of Indonesian Batik on the Unesco Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Yuni Kristina has received 11 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $2500 and the most recent for $5000. Proceeds were used to purchase silk, canting tools, and batik stamps.

Since joining Novica, Yuni has seen steady growth in her workshop. She now provides work to other batik artisans to help produce her range of scarves and shawls.

Yuni has seen continuous growth in her textile project. She is now able to give jobs other batik artisans in her community.

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

Yuni is proud to be able to educate her children and wants them to have a great future.

Yuni has three young children and provides for their care.
