Introduction to Parang
A motif associated with illustriousness and prestige, batik Parang was once only to be worn by those who had royal bloodline in the Yogyakarta region during the Majapahit empire. Directly translating to "cliff," the wavy designs illustrate waves breaking against the rock face, symbolizing the perseverance and strength of good character in the face of hardship.
After a collective year of hardship and much perseverance, we invite you to experience our latest collection of naturally dyed 100% cotton batik scarves made with communal care in the Kemlagi village of Mojokerto.
