Borneo iban sungkit skirt (bidang sungkit) #12 (BT012)

This cloth here is call a bidang sungkit. It is used by the iban poeple of Borneo for special ceremonies such as wedding or religious occasion. The pua sungkit are highly valued by the ibans and normally kept as heirlooms which are handed down from generation to generation. 

Here we have a very unique bidang sungkit that has a very unusual partern and motif with deep red ,yellow , black and white color with nice boarders and very good age. The center motif looks very primitive as if it look like a alien figure.
