The Kembara in Olive is our newest colour to this beloved batik motif. Bright olives and cream complement each other beautifully.
The ancient motif known as sekar jagad is a masterpiece in its own right. Meaning map of the universe, one can easily see this cartographical resemblance in its pattern.
