Details

Working with ancestral textile craft techniques, Yuni Kristina depicts Java's trumtum motif. It covers a blue silk scarf, stamped by hand and embellished with batik. A symbol of awakening love, it refers to a queen who felt neglected when the king took a mistress. She took up batik, creating stars in the dark sky, stars that became her friends. The king was so impressed with her batik that he rediscovered his great love for his wife.

"Beautiful luxurious scarf!"

I love this scarf! The colors are vibrant and the attention to every detail is evident, even down to the little knots on the fringe. The silk is light weight but still gives warmth on a cool evening. It is wide enough to be worn as a shawl but not too bulky when folded for a scarf. Thank you, Yuni!

"I wear this sooo much"

I love this scarf. I wear it A LOT. The colors are fantastic and the silk is luxurious. Its so lightweight and just warm enough without being too warm. I even wear it in the summer. Its perfect for when I need just a little inside with A/C.

"Best blue light silk scarf"

I have been a happy scarf wearer. This blue scarf has been my companion for over a year. It is easy to wear and I like to layer it up while traveling. It goes well with any jacket and adds a special touch even in summery days.

"Beautiful but not the right colors for me"

This a lovely combination of colors and patterns in a very light weight silk. Unfortunately, it didnt complement the intended outfit and I returned it. The return process was easy and efficient- thank you Novica :)

Thank you so much, Yuni, for this gorgeous piece of wearable art! The colors are stunning and the weight of the scarf is perfect for year-round wear. This piece is delicate, hangs beautifully, and finishes an outfit (casual or more formal). This is something I will keep forever.
