Yes it's a Keris with all the characteristics of a (recent) production of Madura (The handle, the sheath, the realization of the blade and pamor).
For the pamor it may be Mayang?

For me, the decorations were hand painted on the fabric.
Whenever I saw (on the internet) fabrics with this type of painting the provenance was always Bali.
