Item Details
Description

Large complete fragment of an Indian Trade textile collected in Toraja

NOTE: THIS TEXTILE HAS NOT BEEN IRONED PRIOR TO PHOTOGRAPHY FOR FEAR OF DAMAGING IT

Depicts a geometric and floral motifs print on a thick coarse cloth. Such patterns placed inside squares in a checkerboard format are seen in Gujarat in bridal saris - the Panetar and the Gharcholu. Further, the borders along the end panels and edges are similar to patterns we see in Thailand textiles today.

Fabulous colors

Fabulous hand-spun yarn.

Is quite likely stencil-printed in Gujarat

Fragmentary state that needs to be mounted on a backing cloth or board to preserve it.

Complete cloths - even with damage - are hard to come by.

Collected on a field visit to Toraja, Sulawesi.

216 x 89 cm

Comparison with other similar examples suggests that this is pre 1900.

[Similar examples have been dated to be from the 13th - 19th century]

For similar examples see

1) The Ashmolean Museum collection

2) The Kelsey Museum collection in Ann Arbor

3) 'Master Dyers to the World' by Mattiebelle Gittinger
