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 this writing in 2016 there is no monograph on the textiles of the Toraja. Most books covering Indonesian textiles have chapters on Sulawesi, in which Toraja ikat usually figures rather prominently.
