At almost two and a half meters, this cloth is exceptionally long and very finely crafted.
Tiga negeri, meaning three lands, refers to the regions that contributed dye for this type of batik: red from Lasem, blue from Pekalongan on Java’s north coast, and brown soga from Central Java.
The motifs include a glorious array of flora and fauna; flowers, birds of paradise, and what could be shrimp, ducks, or swans. The intricate borders containing gigi walang, or cricket teeth, and vines are considered protective for the wearer.
