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.'

This is a very pretty scarf. The colors are as they appear in the picture. The silk is very light, but it's long enough to wrap several times and can be an excellent winter scarf. I think it's the natural fiber of the silk. It's a lovely scarf.
