Borneo kain keban kendayan sungkit(songkit)ceremonial skirt (bidang sungkit) #13 (IT002)

The kendayan people of borneo are one of the monirities of the island. They are very similar to the iban tribe which also is a master of textile.

Here we have an example of a kendayan skirt with songkit parterns with colored treads. This are very unique as the dayak seldom use such colors in their skirts and such parterns are probably influence of the middle east culture due to trade in ealier the days or possibly due to intermarriage from other cultures.

Beautiful piece with viberant colors and in very good condition with minor loose ties on the design - see image for details.
