A fabulous hand drawn batik from the northern coastal town of Cirebon in Java.
The design is called "megamendung" which means "storm clouds". This area of Java has many batik making families of Chinese origin and the batik cloths reflect the favourite colours and designs of China. This design can be seen in many traditional Chinese ceramics and embroideries.
Colours: Bright red, white and pale to very deep blues.
Age and condition: new Size approx: 1.05 x 2.35m
