Main article temporarily inaccessible

The links above give access to detailed descriptions of all the cloths from this island or region in the collection. The full article on the historical and cultural background of this island or region is temporarily inaccessible. As dissemination of information on Indonesian ikat is one of our primary aims, you can be assured that full public access will be restored as soon as feasible. Should you wish to access the deaccessioned information for scholarly purposes, please contact us through the contact page.



As of 2016 the only book specifically covering Raijua is Akiko Kagiya's Female Culture in Raijua: Ikats and Everlasting Witch-Worship in Eastern Indonesia, but it is next to impossible to get. A more accessible source is a short article in Brigitte Khan Majlis's Gewebte Botschaften/Woven Messages. Geneviève Duggan's Woven Stories, Traditional Textiles from the Regency Savu Raijua is the richest source of examples of Raijua ikat.
