Specially selected sarung batik terengganu by Rozi for a cool shoulder bag with a twist. Rozi choose this brown on black batik sarung terengganu and choose the floral side for her bag. A twist to my normal cool shoulder bag is that Rozi wants a zipper for the bag. Plus she wants the handle to be the from the sarung borders for some white on the dark bag. As a result as the first of the two bags shown.
The other bag I pieced from the kepala kain. Somehow or rather I preferred this design than the body motif for bags. On top of the contrasting white on normally dark colors of batik sarung at the kepala kain, the pattern called CORAK REBUNG is iconic to Malay kain sarung batik. Thus poking the deep sentiment for traditional Malay batik.
The bags are sized about 18"x18" with about 20" handle. They are lined with plain black cotton fabric with inside pockets from the same fabric. And of course Rozi's bag is attached with 18" zippers across the top of the bag just below the curvatures for the handle. Hope she likes it.
