Beaded cotton batik shoulder bag, 'Jogjakarta Legacy' (Indonesia)

Java's Wahyu Sulistiani designs a trendy shoulder bag with an internal pocket. Working with batik techniques on cotton, Sulistiani selects the parang sekar pisang motif in a palette of red, blue, green and cream hues. The parang sekar pisang blends two legendary motifs, the parang or dagger, once reserved for Javanese sultans, and the sekar pisang or banana flower.
