Further to my post above I have been in touch with David Fraser and asked if he and Barbara would allow me to post Fig. 299 as shown on page 156 of Mantles of Merit (full details of their book in my first post). The image is of two N'men men wearing pum hrui, Bong village, 1960-61 taken by Professor F.K. Lehman.

With his positive response David has kindly pointed out to me another of Prof Lehman's photos - Fig 26, page 29 of Mantles of Merit - of a N'men funeral in Bong village, 1960-61. In the left foreground is a man sitting with his knees drawn up and his pum hrui tucked between his thigh and lower leg. I would not have distinguished the pum hrui from the ceremonial blanket which is around the man's shoulders although when it is pointed out the difference in warp stripes of the two textiles can be seen.

Thanks for posting this, Pamela. It is the first time I have seen one of these (despite having the Fraser's book). It is a very handsome cloth, I particularly like the shade of "purple" that is an equal mix of red and blue on close inspection.

I am reminded of the sitting cloths that some groups in Borneo use, though the ones I have seen in the past were made of matting I think. It would be interesting to compare those with your example (does anyone have one?).

The only other thing I can think of that bears comparison is a loin cloth from Hainan (photo below), made from bast fiber cloth. There aren't many examples of men's clothing items around, presumably because they often tend to be plainer than the women's varieties and hence get overlooked.

Also striped. Like a Western business suit, or an Indonesian man's sarong. What is it about male preferences and stripes/checks I wonder?

Chris
