Intriguing aspects of the history, beliefs, customs, and material culture of the Indonesian people are revealed in this examination of the vast archipelago's textile arts. Relying on evidence from archaeological excavations and historic records, as well as from contemporary investigations, the authors thematically outline the centuries-long interrelationship between symbolism, styles, manufacturing techniques, and materials inherent in traditional Indonesian fabrics. Fabric Traditions of Indonesia is beautifully and profusely illustrated, with 25 color and 47 black and white plates, and also includes a map and glossary.
