WW: Viva Wastra Indonesia

I guess many of you have known already how I love Indonesian traditional fabrics.
If you see Indonesiaku, then wastra Indonesia section in my blog, you'll get more exposure on that :)

Starting from UNESCO-intangible-heritage Batik, to handmade and woven-with-love Tenun and Songket from various parts of Indonesia, I love them all.

I am such a huge faaan :).

To me, they are more than just a piece of cloth with vibrant colors and vivid patterns. 
They represent the beauty of my ancestors' wisdom, the true reflection of cultural heritage and values, including ancient norms and traditions. Some things that I sincerely hope will forever live and linger among us and the next generation. 
They are the labour of love from women who, at the same time, weave their social structure and identity in a crafty way.

And I, for the love of it, try to wear them all the time.

As I see my photo folders here and there, I found many of those colorful photos are stacking and not yet published. Where have you been, Indah?


Tenun Insana from East Nusa Tenggara..I got them from Atambua..

Let's see some of them here..and I will get back with more stories about those beautiful pieces of art. I still have to learn mooooore about those intricate patterns and their histories. They are so abundant that I sometimes confuse myself :).

Here are some from East and West Nusa Tenggara..

Oh my... I still have sooo many more indeed. And as I said before, I just have to learn about them and I just realized how limited my knowledge about it. Let's dig up and I'll be back with more details :).


Join us on (almost) Wordless Wednesday and have a great linky time :)
