Story Behind the Art:
Yuni Kristina learned the art of batik when she was very young from her mother. 'She has been making batik at home in Java for over 23 years, while waiting each day for my father to come home from the sea. We still design together, especially the floral and bird motifs that are typical in Pekalongan batik. My husband Rieckey also helps me a lot, but as a local Balinese 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.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

I ordered this in the color shown but received one that was black with a little blue color in it. Since I like it so much have decided to keep it anyway since it's quite beautiful and will blend in with everything and perfect over little black dresses. Still, the blue in the picture is truly lovely and I still would not mind having that, as well. By the way, ordered it in the green and still awaiting delivery. The orders were placed at the same time.Read More
