Tiga negeri, meaning three lands, refers to the regions that contributed dye for this type of batik: red from Kudus, blue from Pekalongan on Java’s north coast, and brown soga from Central Java.
Flower and bird motifs play across a background of small circles called gringsing in the center panel, while a sida muki diamond pattern contains various motifs inspired by nature. A traditional protective double border with small lines and vines contains the entire cloth.
The yellowish brown would have been achieved by using a significant amount of dye made from the wood of Maclura cochinchinensis.
