Two colorful birds wing across this beautiful blue handbag from Wahyu Sulistiani. Created in batik on cotton, the sawunggaling motif depicts the king's favorite rooster, which is a symbol of Javanese beauty and power. Lavish beadwork is applied by hand, and the roomy tote — lined in black — opens to reveal a convenient inner pocket.

    Treasured handbag

    This beautiful item got rave reviews from friends on its first outing, and at least one wanted to know how to get one herself.

    Beautiful, but you must be very careful with it.

    This is a beautiful purse, however, you must be very careful with it. I am a bit hard on my purses because I take buses and the trolley. After 2 months it started to have some loose strings that I had to cut off. It is not meant to be used every dayy.

    Beautiful Functional Art

    A beautiful handbag embellished with gold color beads. I have one of Wahyu's purses in green and it has been wearing and delighting me well. The blue is nice and not too super bright. The embroidery in Bali style is exquisite. Whoever gets this bag is very lucky.

    This is a beutifull work. I love the color and beadwork. It is a very unique piece and I always get asked about it. The only thing is I wish it had the option of a shoulder strap.

    Very beautiful handbag, good quality, doesn't look "handmade" at all. I love it! The pattern is really beautiful. And I loved the personal card from the artist!! Such a nice thought!!

    Batik Supreme

    Posted by James on Jul 20th 2019

    Oh my gosh!!! The work on this bag is magnificent. The colors are so rich and gorgeous. The whole design is fantastic. The hand stitched beading sends it to another level. I've been a lover of batik for 40 years and this piece is just awesome in every aspect. It really is a work of art. I'm the guy who bought this for my wife and I know she loves it every bit as much as I do. This is truly a treasure.
