Welcome!

I am sorry that none of us have posted a response. Speaking for myself I find it difficult to immediately identify your textile and would need to search through my textile library to try and track it down. To my eyes there is nothing that, at first sight, makes one say "ah yes, because of .... and ... it must be ..... from ...." It has a sort of generic style which could make it from India or Indian influence. Indian textiles have been traded through the Indonesian archipeligo for centuries. It even has a flavour of a European textile influenced by Indian embroidery since, again, Indian textiles were traded into Europe and influenced embroidery there.

I hope that we be able to help you in due course. It can take some months (or even years(!) for an ID!

very best wishes,
