Synopsis: TENUN: HANDWOVEN TEXTILES OF INDONESIA

“This book sets out to celebrate the rich weaving heritage of Indonesia and to provide a general introduction and overview of the weaving traditions both past and present. Drawing on the expertise and knowledge of recognized academics, as well as the personally acquired understandings of informed collectors, the book will provide a valuable addition to the steadily growing body of knowledge on Indonesian textiles. In addition to explaining the weaving techniques that were, and are, practiced throughout the archipelago, this book also focuses on the visual symbolism of the textiles. Although highly appreciated for their beauty, the designs and motifs are also an important record that may be ‘read’ by both wearer and onlooker. Certain techniques and designs may be dated back to approximately 3000 BCE when warp ikat was widely practiced. The Dongson influenced designs of that period may still be seen in modern weavings from all over Indonesia. Later other cultures introduced their weaving techniques and motifs to the melting pot that became today’s multicultural society. Indian, Chinese, Arab and European influences all left their marks in the weaving traditions we see today. These aspects are explored throughout the pages of this book.Another of the book’s strengths is the wide range of sumptuous colour images that adorn every page. Historical textiles from museum collections are placed side by side with contemporary examples to illustrate how ancient and traditional designs developed into contemporary expressions that reflect the dynamics of a constantly evolving society. Archival photographs of textile weaving and use are also juxtaposed to contemporary practices and use.
