Javanese designer Wahyu Sulistiani selects a palette of black and ivory on red for this cotton shoulder bag. Working with batik techniques on cotton, Sulistiani selects the sawunggaling pattern from Central Java, which depicts a majestic rooster owned by the king. The motif symbolizes the power and beauty of Javanese culture.
Lined in black, the bag features golden beadwork accents and opens to reveal a convenient zipper pocket.
