Details

Classic Javanese batik patterns inspire this elegant silk shawl. Yuni Kristina selects the kawung, an eight-pointed rosette once reserved for the sultan, and the triangular tumpal pattern for this design. These motifs once adorned men's formal clothing during the ancient Javanese Kingdom and symbolize dignity, self-respect and self-esteem.

Each motif is created by hand, as evidenced by the occasional pencil mark or slight color variations.

The Java Starlight shawl in silk is just gorgeous! It is a feast for the eyes with the deep blues and intricate design. Made in a soft, luxurious silk, it truly dazzles. It is at least as beautiful as the picture shows it and everything I had hoped it would be. Many thanks for this amazing piece of art. I will wear it often!
