    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 product is exactlly what the website depicted. It isoft and silky, and the actual colors matched the web description very well. I'm looking forward to wearing it. The maker thoughtfully packaged it in a handmade cotton bag. I'm looking forward to purchasing more items from this seller.

    • Was disappointed when it arrived
      Verified Purchase

      While this is a beautiful shawl the colors are so different that I couldn't believe the one I received in the mail was the same one I had ordered. I thought there had been some mistake! The one pictured looks like a silvery purplish/blue color. The one I have is grey. Very unhappy with the drastic difference. Like I said, it is beautiful and I love the pattern, but I don't know that I like the colors enough to keep it...
