A really beautiful tube shaped sarong in very soft heavy cotton. The sarong has hand sewn seams and is made of three pieces woven on a backstrap loom and then sewn together into a tube. The two outer pieces are identical with a lovely broad zigzagging panel and the middle panel continues the fine patterned stripes.
This piece comes from the province of Sikka in east Flores. It is an old and worn piece but in good condition. The fabric is soft and the colours very gentle and organic.
Size: approx 140 x 188 cms (when opened out)
Colours: all natural vegetable dyes in browns, very dark blue and ivory
