This cloth was batiked in the village of Giriloyo by the women of the Bima Sakti Women's Batik Co-operative. Bu Hartinah and her neighbours come from a line of women with a long tradition of making batik cloths for the Sultan of Jogyakarta and the royal court. Their village out in the rice fields beyond the city, lies just beneath the sacred mountain of Imogiri where the Sultans of Central Java have their tombs.
The cloth is a "sempel tretes" sampler cloth and shows 24 different and named designs. The batik has all been hand drawn and the designs are related to each other.
