This vintage textile comes from Java, Indonesia and is quite special for the quality and amount of work it took to create.

The thread was hand dyed using natural indigo, then hand woven, then hand painted using the traditional batik technique. This involves using melted wax as a way of painting around the negative space. For example in this textile (as with many batiks) you can see the outline is white, as this is the part of the textile that doesn't have any painting on it, while each of the other colors have been painted in layers.

This textile is about 50-65 years old, but is in EXCELLENT condition!

The art of weaving is passed on generationally with women. Part of the proceeds for the sale of this piece goes to support Threads of Life to keep this cultural art alive. http://www.threadsoflife.com/index.asp

This weaving is quite long, measuring 3,60m x 59cm (11.8ft x23in)

I would be very careful washing this piece, only because natural dyes tend to fade quite easily, however if you wash it in very cold water and it should be no problem.

Use it as a table runner, a wall hanging or to dress up the bottom of your bed!
