I am posting two Ketungau pua from Indonesia's Kalimantan, Borneo that I was very fortunate to acquire recently. The Ibanic weavers of Kalimantan are related through ancestry to the vastly more numerous Iban of Malaysia's Sarawak, Borneo and share a very similar weaving heritage but with distinct differences. Kalimantan pua are much more rare than those from the Iban of Sarawak and outstanding Kalimantan pua are very difficult to find especially in good condition. These I believe to be among the exceptional class.

File comment: 72" x 35.25". Warp face Ketungau pua. Handspun cotton, native dyes. Very rich color. Appears never to have been used. From a 1910 collection. "Pua kumbu tua'" translating as ikat pua spirit pattern. Age possibly mid late 1800's.

John

These pua are absolutely stunning! I am amazed at the age of the 'spirit' pua. It look so freshly dyed and woven. It has so much vitality. Wonderful when a textile can keep such freshness despite the Borneo climate.

Both textiles are indeed fine and exceptional. You are fortunate to have custody of them. As ever one would love to know the stories of their origin.

Hi John,

No, I am not a collector of such.

My wish would be that description field for posting images also included a prompt to post dimensions.

Hark, Hark! :wink:

Hi Larry,

Sorry, I hear your concern that dimensions of textiles are posted! However, the forum is based on a phpBB forum and I don't think that your request is likely to rate highly on their list of amendments to make to the structure of the forum. We textile obsessives are a small minority!

Best
