Tapis Cucuanda, women’s ceremonial tube-skirt, Kauer People, Lampung, Sumatra, late 19th century, hand woven cotton and silk ground cloth with applied lead-backed mica mirrors and silk embroidery, natural dyes.
All Lampung women must complete a tapis skirt cloth prior to marriage, and then wear it to ceremonial occasions thereafter. Each village and watershed has its own distinctive style of skirt, allowing women who marry outside their immediate community to be identified according to their origin for the rest of their life. This is a superb example in excellent condition. Probably pre-Krakatoa. (MT)
