Last year to celebrate Indonesia’s National Batik Day, Jenggala launched the Kartini Batik Collection. This year continuing our homage to the Batik, Jenggala presents a limited series of hand painted items depicting selected Batik patterns. The patterns chosen, Parang, UdanLiris and Kawung, was originally reserved to be used only by the members of the Royal Families in Yogyakarta and Surakarta.

The Parang pattern represents power and speed in sword like patterns. In the Hand Painted Batik Series, the pattern is explored in the form of the peacock using terquoise hues, the rooster using rustic brown and red hues, and the ‘Jalak Bali’ using dark indigo and green hues.

The UdanLiris pattern represents fertility and shares similar angular lines as the ParangRusak pattern. The exploration of this pattern on stoneware ceramic takes on a classic approach using grey monochromatic tones.

The Kawung pattern symbolizes justice and power. Consisting of four circles that focuses on a singular point, the pattern is explored to unveil the hidden beauty of a butterfly in neutral orange and brown hues.
