Description

Vintage Ulos Batak, Sumatran textiles.

This is a lovely vintage Batak shoulder blanket made by the people living in the Toba region of Sumatra.

These textiles are worn on special occasions like births, marriages and deaths, different designs in the embroidery define when they should be worn.

Unfortunately I don't know what occasion this one is for.

I am not sure of it's age but I am currently researching it. I bought it in 1998 in Lake Toba and even then it looked like it had some good age to it.

It measures 28 inches by 67 inches to the beaded edge of the fabric not including the fringing.

It is in good vintage condition but there is a little bit of fading and one corner of the bead work is loose for about an inch.
