Ive just joined, with help from Pamela.

The decorative strips on this jacket are almost identical to the edges of tampan from the Kota Agung-Liwa area of Lampung. The form of the curly pale blue strip in particular may be diagnostic for this area. So these bits are from Lampung.
The shape and format of the jacket is similar to Kauer jackets. The striped background cloth is simple and perhaps non-specific, but as the Batak had similar and some Pasemah selendang are not dissimilar, perhaps the western mountains of Sumatra is reasonable.

So Id say Kauer or Pasemah.

Hi Chris

Congratulations on joining and finally getting to post - which is a very informative one!

Seemed to me to be such a shame that your post had started a new page of the thread and Susan's photos are at the start of the thread on page 1 that I have copied Susan's image of the complete front of the jacket so that we can pick up your ID comments with the image in front of us.

This is such an attractive jacket - modest at first glance yet the fine detailing in the technique is quite beguiling.

File comment: see start of first page of the thread for three views of this jacket
