Story Behind the Art:
'I learned the art of batik when I was very young, since my mother is a batik artist in Java. She has been making batik at home for over 23 years, while waiting each day for my father, a fisherman, to come home from the sea. As you can imagine, batik is a part of my life. I started experimenting with the technique when I was 13 years old. Now I've learned to create different motifs and to work with other materials, such as silk. My mother is my inspiration. She and I still design together, especially the floral and bird motifs that are typical in Pekalongan batik. My husband Rieckey also helps me a lot because he knows what people like abroad, and then I can focus on creating. As a local Thai woman, I'm very proud of the fact that I can have the career that I love, and to be able to provide for myself and my family.' -Yuni Kristina

The scarf is fairly pretty, but it is NOT a tan color at all. It is actually a vibrant green with no brown whatsoever. I'm also a little surprised at how low quality the fabric is. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep it or not.
I love this beautiful scarf! My only complaint is that the silk is very thin and delicate. I had hoped it would be a little bit sturdier for regular wear. None the less, it is a beautiful, comfortable piece that is getting a lot of use in my regular wardrobe.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The painting is extraordinary! The silk is very light, thin and delicate. The silk is thinner and prone to snagging than is ideal but I still love wearing it.
How accurate was the sizing? Exactly as described.
