Indonesian artisan Yuni Kristina presents this stunning shawl, resplendent in shades of jade, teal, and Caribbean blue. 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. The truntum motif, a symbol of unconditional love, appears in the corner of each kawung, and the tumpal motif graces the ends of the shawl.
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.
