Luminous Threads: Traditional Indonesian Textiles
Indonesian textiles are as varied as their sources, with each displaying distinctive motifs and unique symbolism. Their beauty and craftsmanship are clear even to the most casual observer, but a deeper value lies in their history and varied and diverse origins; their motifs rich in cultural lore; their ceremonial uses steeped in tradition. They reflect a rich and diverse heritage.
In the context of great ethnic and religious variation, the textiles of the Indonesian archipelago are extraordinarily varied, in terms of their weaving and dyeing processes, in their design, in their functions and in the meanings attributed to them
