Product Description

Finely woven Savu cloth with warp-ikat figures
This textile was purchased ca. 1990 on a trip to Indonesia, probably in Bali. We were told it was 20-40 years old at the time.

This cloth was hand woven of cotton on the island of Savu. It is a type of incidental cloth which called a selandang. The weave is fine cotton, in warp-face plain weave with designs in warp ikat. All dyes are vegetal dyes. Long twisted warp fringes decorate both ends. The textile was woven in 2 panels and jointed longitudinally. Dimensions are 33 inches wide and 67 inches long, excluding the fringes.

Condition is very good, no holes or stains, only some light wear and/or soil is possible. There is some incidental sunfading, especially in the light blue indigo-dyed areas. In the photos below, the warp always runs horizontally. The first image shows approximately half of the garment, the other half is a mirror image with similar figures at the end.
