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!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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 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"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.

"This is one of my favourite schawls"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

It is thinner than i thought it would be but still not to thin to be fragile (for people like me anyway, who tend to get fragile materials damaged no matter how much we try to look after them) and its nice on a cool summer evening or over a jumper in winter (not that i have had any such weather to try it yet). I love brown but wanted some colour as well, that was not to bright so while brown looks good with colours like white it matches much more . And the material feel beautiful and soft.

Best Uses

  • Over a dress to add colour or cover your shoulders n the evening breeze, over just about anything
