Telang (Clitoria ternatea) is commonly known as Asian pigeonwings, Bluebellvine, Blue pea, Butterfly Pea, Cordofan pea or Darwin pea. The genus name is Clitoria, a direct translation from the local name of this plant in the Ternate language; which called as Telang, literally means "clitoris" due to its shape that resembles the shape of human female genitals.
It is grown as an ornamental plant and as a revegetation species requiring little care when cultivated. The flower is used as a natural food colouring to colour glutinous rice and desserts as well as a Traditional medicine. In our kampung, here in Terengganu, it is an important ingredient in “Nasi Kerabu”, giving it its characteristic bluish colour.
Its extracts possess a wide range of pharmacological activities including antimicrobial, antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, diuretic, local anesthetic, antidiabetic, insecticidal, blood platelet aggregation-inhibiting and for use as a vascular smooth muscle relaxing properties.
Batik Telang is made from two Batik Brasses. To define this perennial herbaceous plant as a motif, we have included its elliptic, obtuse leaves. It is handblocked in such a way that it seems like a vine or creeper. Symbolic and pretty, that’s our Batik Telang, our very first motif from the Penawar 2023 Batik Collection!
Meticulously handblocked and handpainted by our skilled artisans, our colourful tote comes in our very own batik prints. The interior is large enough to fit a towel, beach read and your everyday petite belongings.
