A wonderful vintage batik cloth which has been dyed using natural dyes. 60 - 70 years old.
The design is one of the dozens of "semen" designs which feature dense and intricate floral designs. This one features both single birds and pairs of birds and laden rice stalks - all symbols denoting fecundity and strong fertility.
It could have been worn particularly at a rice blessing ceremony or at a wedding or birth,.
Very good condition. The background colour is ivory with pale honey brown , black and touches of indigo blue.
