John

The Kantu 'river skeeters' is a stunning design - a modern poster, so very, very graffic. The Kantu shoulder cloth is very complex - I missed the anthropomorphs at first as they are so buried in the complexity of the design. I find it just so amazing that these designs have all been conceived by the weaver and then translated into the binding of the threads in the ikat, dyed, bound and then dyed again.

I am posting 2 details of my first posted bidang. Sorry for the converging verticals as it is hanging in my hallway. I should have gone and got a stool to photograph it - getting a bit late in the day!

It is fascinating learning more about the pieces and very exciting!

Note the three rows of opposed hooks and the consistent location of the hooks along a single base line in each row.

Interesting viewpoint (in more ways than one), John.

As a 'sewer' I would say that the skirt length was probably manipulated in all directions. I would imagine that the fabric was rotated so that the line of stitch was most comfortable at any point of line or curve. However, the main flow of the sewing is parallel to the the straight lines of sewing which forms a border along the top and bottom of the skirt. The first 'row' above the straight lines has been sewn across in zig-zags parallel to them. The rest of the lattice has been created by squares made of chain stitch. A few additional stitches - not chain - have been added to join the points of the squares parallel to the straight lines to give an optical illusion of the lines having been created from left to right. I think that this framework of lattice would be sewn first and then the 'hooks' would have been added in afterwards.

I would think it unlikely that it was sewn on a frame.

I have a couple of Iban ikat skirts which have added applied trade fabric hems or borders. One is quite wide and has embroidery and pieces of silver paper applied, possible also wool thread couched. The hem has been subject to quite hard wear so much of this has worn off. The cotton ikat has stood up to the wear, the decorative hem has not. The hem is two layers - red, quite fine almost lawn, cut in a notched fashion, an added white band behind also notched and then the hem is lined with a piece of indigo on natural batik which has been hand-drawn not cap.

Most of the ikat thread seems to be hand-spun and woven cotton. Possibly one or two threads in the two woven borders may be purchased. There are a few yellow threads which might have been purchased, chemically dyed thread. I suppose many collectors of Iban weavings might remove the added border. However, I collect first and foremost items of clothing so that is how I want to keep my textiles. I think that is why I think of my skirts as they would have been worn and thus keep showing them in that direction. The women who wove the designs would have had a dual focus - the overall design in the direction of the warp but, as women they must also have been thinking of how the skirts would look when worn.
