We specialize in antique and vintage textiles from the Indonesian archipelago, from glittering songket to refined hand-waxed batik tulis and intricate ikat cloths. Many of these cloths are highly significant for spiritual and cultural reasons, such as identifying the wearers’ status or imparting magical protective qualities.

Our large collection includes textiles from Borneo, Sumatra, Sulawesi, Java, Bali and the East Nusa Tenggara islands of Timor, Sumba, Flores and Sawu.
