International Textile Collection

Indonesian Textiles


Indonesian batik

The Indonesian Collection constitutes a stunning number of highly decorative batik fabrics principally from Java, and a number of woven ikats.

To this has recently been added the Coleman Collection: a substantial loan collection of batiks, ikats and weaves from Mr Hywel Coleman (Honorary Senior Research Fellow in the School of Education, and educationalist in Indonesia since the 1970s). Its greatest strengths are textiles from South Sulawesi, Bali, and West and East Nusa Tenggara.
