Batik Hipwrap (‘Kain Panjang’) (TP)

Probably made in Lasem, on Java’s north coast, this handsome old batik resembles the ones done for the Sumatra market in coloration and ‘kepala’ design, but not in the designs in the central field. Done in a combination of hand-drawn (‘tulis’) and stamp (‘tjap’) techniques, the patterns include phoenixes, butterflies and flowers, all of which evince Chinese influence in Java’s principal trading towns. Curious, almost cryptic patterns adorn the light areas on one end. The background material is fine, buff colored cotton. Condition is good, tho somewhat fragile with some tears and numerous small holes; the far right lower corner has an undyed area. We don’t think this was ever worn as it was never sewn into a tube, but rather probably stored and saved. Early 20th century. Size: 82″ x 38″
