The structure of this sayut cloth is a representation of the agricultural rice growing landscapes. The macram fringes are made after the cloth is waved and before the cloth is batiked. A cloth like this is traditionally a wrap to carry a baby as in a sling but it makes a smashing sash or wrap.
The motif is called Parikesit – a reference to the story of Mahabharata – Parikesit was Arjuna's grandson. This motif wrapped around the head would give courage.
Information about the makers will be supplied with each cloth.
