Kain Geringsing Wayang Baris, Tenganan Pageringsingan Village, Bali, first quarter 20th century or earlier, double-ikat patterning on hand-spun local cotton, natural dyes (primarily indigo and morinda).
Geringsing are both worn for rituals, and used ceremonially in other ways throughout Bali, as shown in the photograph (taken in Karangasem Regency, but not in Tenganan). The Wayang Baris pattern (left), includes: representations of food offerings piled in a large bowl with incense sticks protruding from them; praying figures; and an arca ancestor figure in pointed warriorÂ’s helmet on a plinth. Baris is a term which refers to the rows (baris) of warriors in a pitched battle. (MT)

Balinese ‘Endek’ Sarong (TP)

Lovely, silky cotton is used to make these handwoven ikat textiles, which are worn for ceremonial occasions. They have a sheen that cannot be captured in a photograph. The design is from the famous ‘geringsing’ double ikat textiles made in Tenganan, tho these pieces are from Sideman. It has become much more difficult to find quality endek these days and these may be the last that we will have with crisp ikat, good colors, quality materials and complex, traditional designs.
Size: 39.75″ x 81″
