Hi,I think you might consider that this ikat may be from the island of Savu. The distinctive features are the narrow ikat bands with the floating stripes. I presume this is a tube skirt and not a shoulder cloth? Please refer to Ikats of Savu by Genevieve Duggan pg. 124 for a quick reference.
I hope this helps
Lesley

This textile has Savunese sarong patterns but, unless it is two panels joined, it is a bit wide to have been woven on a backstrap loom. Have seen a few of this type of textile recently and would guess it is new, commercial production woven on a frame loom. Don't know where they are being made, perhaps Java or Bali. It is still a lovely, decorative textile. Use and enjoy it.

It is certainly made in one piece, and with my very limited knowledge I had thought that quite unusual, here is a photograph of the selvedge.

This workshop in Troso, Jepara, Central Java (on the north coast) produces warp ikat textiles from throughout Nusa Tenggara Timor (eastern islands). The authentic tyeing and dyeing was all undertaken in the large workshops and the weaving completed on many upright fixed frame looms. They sell these textiles wholesale and retail in their own shops.
It is quite possible that your textile was produced in a workshop such as this, the telling feature is that it is in one section, a sure sign a sheet of the dimensions you mention (its quite large) was woven on such a loom.
It might just be useful for you to be aware of the possible method and location of production of your large Savu piece.

I agree with all the above. It looks vaguely like Savu, but the yellow already gives it away - no such colour on Savu cloths. This is a typical example of 'perindustrian' - industrialization, which threatens original traditions.
