Hello everybody.

Where is this from? okay it is most likely tourist stuff and not old. We all desire antique pieces but that is not the main reason for me. Just knowing more about these things, where, who and how are interesting to me especially when the item in question cost less than a cup of coffee. I do not know why but I think of Turkey and the so called rams horns? It appears to me to be made of wool.

Hi-
Just a quick reply to satisfy some of your curiosity- you have a runner from Sumba, an Indonesian island east of Bali. These are warp-patterned textiles, as you can see from the floating warps on the back. Usually woven in two or three colors, additional coloration is added with hand-applied pigment- in this one the yellow has been added later. I haven't seen these in use, but assume they are made to be worn as shoulder cloths. I use them as runners for tables or to hang on the wall. A dealer friend from Sumba always called these 'melolo', but that is a geographic location, so perhaps these come from there- I don't know, but perhaps another member can tell us more.

Susan, thank you so much. Perhaps it is cotton. I have looked far more closely, fascinating.
My impression was of something that might be considerd a little crude/rough? in manufacture. I am now not so sure. There are as far as I have found three little bumps, weaving faults or corrections. Now I understand the yellow is a hand applied pigment it becomes clear that a lot of time and care went into the item. Picture under a glass. I think it is great especially when it cost less than coffee in a paper cup. Uncomfortable to hold, too hot to drink and you look silly walking around with it.
