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.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

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.

Yuni Kristina has received 11 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $2500 and the most recent for $5000. Proceeds were used to purchase silk, canting tools, and batik stamps.

Since joining Novica, Yuni has seen steady growth in her workshop. She now provides work to other batik artisans to help produce her range of scarves and shawls.

Yuni has seen continuous growth in her textile project. She is now able to give jobs other batik artisans in her community.

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

Yuni is proud to be able to educate her children and wants them to have a great future.

Yuni has three young children and provides for their care.
