Book Description
Some of the world’s finest textiles are made in Indonesia, the great archipelago that embrances thousands of Islands between Sumatra and New Guinea. Prized as items or trade and inheritance, fabrics are often displayed or exchanged during such rites of passage as coming of age and marriage. Textiles are also symbols of prestige, and in the past the most exquisite designs were used only by the highest ranks of society. Indonesia is justly famed for its textiles decorated with batik and ikat, but there are many other fascinating fabric traditions, such as supplementary weft, which has only recently begun to be fully appreciated in the West.
