Jogja Collection ~ My daughter Willow lives in Yogyakarta, the cultural center of Java, drawn there by its vibrant arts scene. On a visit to see Willow we shopped for extraordinary scarves, knowing how delightfully they accessorize the Sympatico collection. Combing the batik and ikat workshops of “Jogja,” as the city’s called by its inhabitants, we unearthed some fine examples of textile art. Masters of resist dyeing and fabric painting, Javanese textile artists are among the world’s finest, and my Yogyakarta Scarf Collection reflects that. Because most designs are one-of-a-kind, I have just one of these scarves available.
