Javanese sarong patterned in hand stamped wax resist, a technique similar to the Indian Kalamkari .The design was applied using hand carved stamps that were parts of a larger stamping tool that provided efficiency and proper spacing. Here the stamping was applied to a white tabby cotton which was then dyed in beautiful indigo. Once boiled and washed, the stamped designs lost the wax and reverted to white. Three stamp motifs ; round, square and diamond shapes that are further filed with geometrical and biomorphic all elements. Borders of stripes with some cracking patterns.

Keep in mind ...

Our vintage and antique pieces have traveled throughout the world and survived decades - maybe even centuries - of use. Do not expect them to be in perfect or *new* condition. Signs of their past makers and owners may be noticeable such as small holes, loose threads, & stains. In our opinion, this adds to their charm!
