Hi Susi!

What a great group of textiles from Roti! The technical quality of motifs on most looks very high - textile gems! Thanks very much for sharing them with us.

Can you give us any more information about Roti textiles? I can see that certain pieces are obviously skirt cloths but I don't know about others that you show. Some perhaps shoulder cloths? I am intrigued by others such as 4365, 4362, which have a completely different style of centre piece as the photo is taken.

best,

Susi, What a feast for the eyes! Thanks so much for posting this fantastic collection! Do you know which kingdoms the pieces come from? Are they handspun thread?

I see that many of the pieces have initials in them. Would these be the initials of the woman who wove the cloth or perhaps those of the person who was going to wear the cloth?

I like the Lafa Ina (saddle blanket piece without fringes) and the Nggeo Tenggok (black center) piece with the plain indigo square in the center. Few of these pieces came out of Roti in the 70s and 80s. Of course I like all of the textiles which are very high quality and each unique.

The shawl with what seems to be Garuda birds is interesting. Could this piece proclaim the independence of Indonesia? Patola influence is very strong in Rotinese textiles but I never saw a patola on the island on any of my visits in the 80s. Have you ever seen a patola on Roti or one that was said to have been collected on the island? There must have been patola on Roti at one time. Any idea what happened to them?

Thanks again and hope to hear more about this great collection!

Best Regards, MAC
