Heirloom Textile / Ma’a made in Gujarat, India, 17th century collected in Sulawesi, Indonesia Pictured is the left half of a very wide piece, measuring 12’11” x 36
Technique: Resist and mordant dyed handspun cotton.
Description: Two similar panels with a solid blue center and ends. Each panel has nine pairs of sirih leaves and in the center four long palms with leaves and fruit at their tops. The background is filled with an overall motif of a half circle enclosing vertical lines all going the same direction. This background design resembles the Javanese batik semen pattern. The Toraja people of Sulawesi call this a daun bolu or sirih leaf cloth and it is hung for the merok ceremony. The merok ceremony is both a thanksgiving ritual and an evocation for continued prosperity (see “Trade, Temple and Court”; plate 4).
One can imagine how impressive the power of this bold design and strong coloration would be when it was hanging across the front of an imposing Toraja lineage house.
Condition: Small holes throughout have been repaired
Dimensions: 35 3/4″ H x 12′ 11″ L ( .91 x 3.94 m ) (TG)

Heirloom Textile collected in Central Sulawesi, Palu area Indonesia 16th century
Radio-carbon dated ETH-35480, 95.4% 1530 – 1610.
Technique: Warp ikat, single-ply handspun cotton warp and weft (blue)
Description: The textile has weft selvages and cut warp ends. Another example very related to this has a continuous warp. Looking at this textile closely it appears that the warps may have been cut exactly at the place where the last wefts were inserted, so I do not believe that there is a part of the original missing .
The textile is composed of one section with its weft selvages of solid medium indigo dyed blue. The second section has bands of fine linear ikat divided by blue stripes. Some of these bands are very dark blue and others a medium depth blue. The ikat design is in a reddish tan color set on a purple-colored ground that is made from an overdyeing of red and blue. The motifs are punctuated by small spots of these two colors; a light red and a light blue.
The bands of motifs include step motifs, horizontally oriented “S” shapes, interlocking spirals, a continuous triangular or cone shape and a running geometric border. These curvilinear designs are beautifully articulated in harmonic coloration.
To the best of my knowledge there are less than five other known examples or related textiles collected in Sulawesi and perhaps only ten other textiles that might be dated to before the 17th century from other areas of Indonesia. It is very rare and a remarkable discovery.
The textile is lightly sewn on to a support fabric. It is shown as it would have been seen as a garment that is folded in to a circular format. It could of course be opened to show the entire length.
Dimensions: Warp: 80 1/2″, weft: 19″ ( 2.05 x 0.49 m ); mounting fabric dimensions, 3′ 9 1/2″ x 2′ 3 1/4″ ( 1.16 x 0.69 m ) (TG)

Technique: Warp ikat, single-ply handspun cotton warp and weft (blue)

Looking at this textile closely it appears that the warps may have been cut exactly at the place where the last wefts were inserted, so I do not believe that there is a part of the original missing
The textile is composed of one section with complete weft selvages. The second section has bands of fine linear ikat divided by blue stripes. Some of these bands are very dark blue and others a medium depth blue. The ikat design is in a reddish tan color set on a purple-colored ground that is made from an overdyeing of red and blue. The motifs are punctuated by small spots of these two colors; a light red and a light blue.
The textile has a scrolling border at either end. Two matching wide ikat bands have motifs reminiscent of ikat motifs still known among the Toraja and also in Timor. These include a head with extended earlobes, a type of “sekong”, i.e., a type of figure with four limbs and a solar plexus, integrated into a spiral composition. The center bands of motifs include interlocking spirals, a continuous triangular or cone shape and a running geometric border. The curvilinear motifs are beautifully articulate the complex imagery. The use of red and blue highlights emphasizes the movement of the design.
To the best of my knowledge there are less than five other known examples or related textiles collected in Sulawesi and perhaps only ten other textiles that might be dated to before the 17th century from other areas of Indonesia. It is very rare and a remarkable discovery.

 Traditional Textiles Indonesia, indonesia, fabrics, clothes,textiles, tribal, Handwoven fabric , weavings, batik, sarong, ikat, sonket, sulawesi, celebes, bugis, buginese,

Kain Sarong men’s skirt cloth, Bugis people, South Sulawesi, early to mid-20th century, weft ikat patterning on silk, aniline dyes, flat textile sewn into a tube (can be opened up).
One wonders if the weaver knew how modern this skirt cloth would look. Pow. The image at left shows an 18th century depiction of a Bugis couple, perhaps inaccurately, as it would have been drawn from written descriptions only. The Bugis are famed as Indonesia’s finest seafarers and traders, and are infamous (historically) as pirates. The term “bogey man” is derived from the word Bugis, and reflects the general attitude toward the Bugis on the part of travellers in pre-modern Indonesia: fear. (MT)
