Hand-stamped using the traditional batik process, the silk wrap features the kawung motif, believed to have originated with the King of Mataran and to represent good will toward all.

"Functional as well as decorative"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This lightweight shawl is wide enough and long enough that it can be wrapped around my shoulders over a summer dress when the temperature (whether indoors or out) suddenly drops, and it keeps me warm. I also wear it, draped in many different ways, with dresses year-round. It is long enough to hide middle-age bulges! The colors seem to go with almost everything I wear.
