BORNEO KAIN KEBAT offerANG IKAT Women's CEREMONIAL CLOTH skirt IBAN Crocodiles

Shown here is a fabulous, kain kebat/offerang skirtfrom the island of Borneo collected in 1980. Made by IBAN Dyak women on the island of Borneo.

According to Gavin, " the time, effort, and skill involved in making ikat skirts have been much underrated by non-Iban observers." Often, skirt patterns can be more complex than pua.An ikat skirt(kainkebat) is not just a festive dress. Gavin further points out that kain kebat are worn only during ritual acts performed by women, such as setting out the ingredients for food offereing, ritually feeding and combing the sacrificial pig, and on." The reason they do this is because the gods take delight in the sight of patterned textiles. Just like the Balinese, the Iban dress for the gods!

Size of cloth: 21" x 42"

Condition: Very good. Hand-sewn at the selvage. Soft feel to cloth.

Colors: Rust-brown. orangeand gold. Blue color on top of crocodille's head.

Natural dyes in the center of the ikat. Unknown if orange dye on the border is synthetic or natural.

Motifs: Looks like two crocodiles swimming upstream in a river. Jungle-like designs. Motifs are handed down from the mother to daughter. Spiral and hooks are also seen in this kain kebat reminisicient of old Dongson designs, often seen in Southeast Asian art.

Technique: Warp ikat. Cotton material. Feels like it could be handspun.
