Also would like to send season's greetings to everyone on the forum, and their families...hope you all have a happy and safe Christmas & New Year. As MAC is posting up pictorial prezzies...here is one from me ! Laotian embroidery I picked up about 20years ago at a market in Vientiane. Cheers and best regards to all - Steve.

Steve,

Beautiful textile with Christmas colors!! I wonder if it is continuous and discontinuous supplementary weft woven patterns rather than embroidery? Thanks for the season's greetings and posting this lovely textile!!

Best regards

MAC, thanks...and yes a combination of the supplementary weft methods as you said...sorry just a lazy description earlier by me ! Will have to take some more photos and start a new thread later, rather than hijacking the Christmas thread. Cheers - Steve

I wanted to add my own 'Season's Greetings' and to thank MAC and Bambang for sharing their beautiful cloths with us. I also want to thank everyone who has contributed to the forum over the past year - thank you all very much!

I am sharing a beautiful Batak ikat cloth with you. It is fragile - it would be beyond my ability to afford if it were not in a less than perfect state. The main photo does not do justice to the glory of the colours. Sandra Niessen has identified it as somewhere between a Jobit and a Runjat The dealer that I bought it from was told when he bought it in N Sumatra that the cloth was given to a grandfather on the birth of his (first) grandson.

Image

Here is a detail of the ikat (also showing some very fine supplementary warp down the left hand side of the image:

Image

In Sandra's 'Legacy in cloth: Batak textiles of Indonesia' on page 158 she shows an image of a similar cloth - a runjat - being worn by a leader in the early 20th century, possibly in the Silindung valley.

Image

Quote:
fig. sr 6.7 A Batak leader.
Early twentieth century. Photoarchives VEM 203–0195

The rugged appearance of this man contrasts with the tidiness of the men associated with the Church (see other illustrations in this chapter). It is not known where this photograph was taken but the clothing combination could have been found in Toba Silindung. He is wearing a RUNJAT Cat 6.10 hipcloth, and his shouldercloth is a RAGIDUP Cat 7.1

May we get to share many beautiful textiles in 2015 and to extend our knowledge and understanding of them, their makers and the culture within which they are based.
