Nusantara, Cradle of Life

Truntum, kawung, sekar jagad. These heritage motifs designed in one batik piece make the Nusantara special. 
When combined, the truntum (love), kawung (community), sekar (flowers) and jagad (world), —  it represents a union — of people, nature and the planet. The intricacy of this piece highlights the work and patience of artisans in bringing it to life. Earthy colours symbolise the warmth hospitality of the Javanese who are known to be mindful of the feelings of those around them. This is a piece for keepsakes.
