Batik Silk Shawl with Kawung Motifs from Bali

(16 reviews) Write a Review
SKU: 184472
Yuni Kristina conjures classic Javanese batik patterns in mesmerizing shades of black, gray, and green. Stamped by hand on a luxurious silk shawl, they include the parang, or dagger, once exclusive to the courts of Surakarta and Jogyakarta. Formerly reserved for the sultan's use, flowers and the kawung,--an eight-pointed rosette set within a square, rhombus, or circle-- complement the parang.

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

    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. I'm ordering a second one for my dear friend for her birthday.

    Gorgeous and generously sized

    I've used this shawl as a wrap for theater outings, dinner dates and other times I wanted something prettier than a sweater or jacket. It always gets compliments. The colors are so vibrant and the pattern is striking. It's soft and big enough to be a cozy accessory, not just a beautiful one! I plan to purchase another one as a gift.
