Details

Working with ancestral textile craft techniques, Yuni Kristina depicts Java's trumtum motif. It covers a silk scarf, stamped by hand and embellished with batik. A symbol of awakening love, trumtum refers to a queen who felt neglected when the king began to favor his mistress. The queen took up batik, creating stars in the dark sky, stars that became her friends. The king was so impressed with her batik that he rediscovered his great love for his wife.

The Java Starlight shawl in silk is just gorgeous! It is a feast for the eyes with the deep blues and intricate design. Made in a soft, luxurious silk, it truly dazzles. It is at least as beautiful as the picture shows it and everything I had hoped it would be. Many thanks for this amazing piece of art. I will wear it often!

Cristina

Loved the shawl!Outstanding quality and attention to detail. Colors are beautiful and vibrant without being too ""loud"". Packaging was equally beautiful and actually can be used for storing the shawl.
