Details

Traditional methods and timeless style join forces on this breathtaking shawl designed by Indonesian artisan Yuni Kristina. She uses a stamp batik process on 100% silk to craft shawls that evoke the rich cultural history of Bali and Java. The truntum motif takes center stage in shades of biru, or blue. Thought to have been designed by the Queen Kanjeng Ratu Kencana of the kingdom of Surakarta, the truntum pattern represents unconditional love and appears on this shawl in teal over a celadon background. Caribbean blue colored kawung appear at the center of every truntum motif. Traditionally, the kawung motif represents good will toward human kind and is thought to have been designed by the King of Mataran.

"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.

This beautiful shawl Java Sea is a treat. The colors and design are so pleasing and the silk is very soft and drapes well. This became an instant favorite. Im ordering a second one for my dear friend for her birthday.
