A rare complete large Indian Trade textile with damage.

Amazing blue-green & and salmon on coarse cotton cloth

Printed with a variety of motifs that are seen in Patan Patola double-ikats that were very popular in Indonesia.

Collected on a field visit to Toraja, Sulawesi.

This is a rare opportunity to own something as rare and as old as this fantastic little work of art that had traveled from India to Toraja sometime in it's past and then has back to Singapore.

Has signs of usage and wear. Holes present, edgewear, fading etc.

RARE TEXTILE - Examination of the close-ups to see the yarn and the weave is recommended
