Batik Open Jacket | Semerah
- Textile & Composition
The unexpected contrast of red on ice blue brings a contemporary feel to the Semerah Jacket. We see yam leaves, flowers woven with symbols of water on this piece indicating self-reliance and independence. The icing on the cake, we say is the slobog motif, tiny red triangles at the hem of the jacket, which symbolise sincerity in all our actions and an open heart.
The jacket is fully lined for a luxurious feel, yet lightweight enough for daily wear. Features drop shoulders, two pockets at the front, and in either regular or long sleeves.
Malam dingin (cold wax), is a contemporary technique that uses the hand screen method with cold wax to outline motifs, creating a 3D effect on the cloth. Cold wax is a blend of natural ingredients, including tamarind. Hand wash on cold to retain its colours and beauty. Made by a family of artisans in Solo, Central Java.
