This shawl does look very much like the colors in picture. It is lightweight but not transparent. The many colors and batik artwork are beautiful.

"Spring Essence"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Beautifully done! Nice and lightweight lovely spring colors. Looks great with any outfit . Good representation of the colors in the picture so you get what you ordered and not something different. Enjoy the little card and picture. Cute bag for packaging too! Appreciate items that are unique and not made here and you won?t see it on someone going down the street.

"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.

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.
