Yuni Kristina conjures classic Javanese batik patterns in mesmerizing shades of blue. 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. Made in Indonesia.

I totally love this shawl!! The colors are beautiful and it's exactly what I was looking for. I'm really glad that I'll be able to wear this year-round! It is light but still has some weight to it so I can still wear it like a scarf. I'll be watching for more of Yuni's items to purchase. Thanks to Novica!!
