Hi all,

We collected this ikat sarong ('utang) in the Sikka village (1992). I have a doubt with the main pattern (Kélang) : is it a naga (snake) pattern ?

Thanks a lot for your help

Remy

Hallo Remy,

What made you think that this is a Sikka sarong? It is actually from Savu. Precise identification of the provenance of Savu textiles is a very complex affair. My guess it that this is an ei mea from the moiety hubi ae, the latter on account of what appear to be the red edges of the sambungan tengah, middle seam. The motif is typical for hubi ae as well, and is called wokelaku.

Where and when did you acquire it?

Kind regards,
Peter

Dear Peter,

Thank you very much for your reply. We purchased it in the Sikka Natar village, at the market, during summer of 1992. We have just one cloth from Savu, but with floral patterns, very different of this one. I visit from time to time your well documented site ikat.us, but I have not yet explored part devoted to Savu. Thank you, for avoiding a mistake.

Best regards,

Rémy
