Exceptionally fine early 20th century antique ikat sarong from the tiny island of Savu, Indonesia. The weave is a bit course indicating this was made from local native cotton, rather than handspun imported material. This piece is in perfect condition with 6 narrow patterned bands of floating weft. All dyes are organic also note in last enlargement that the narrow blue and white bands are ikat dyed in groupings of only four strands. This is composed of two panels with one being about 6cm wider than the other- this not damage but the way it was originally made. H: 174cm/68.5in and W: 110cm/43in.
