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.

"Color in Photo a Little Misleading"

This is a very nice scarf and will not return, however, the person I had in mind to give is fond of the color purple or lavender. The description, which I failed to notice, says black grey, and green, which it is. The photo shows purple and blue.

"I love it!"

I love it all. Love the size & the texture of the silk (some feel heavier & too silky for me) and I love the color. It is hard to get that kind of pattern & bright Colors
