Ikats of Savu: Women Weaving History

Studies in the Material Cultures of Southeast Asia No. 1

This book represents the first volume in a new series edited by Michael Howard. The book explores the links between mythology and weaving of the island of Savu and examines how textiles have formed the fabric of Savunese society throughout time. Ikat weavings of Savu are exceptional in the sense that they act as markers of historical events. They have a heraldic significance and can be “read” like a text. They also form a language expressing the socio-political structure of Savunese society. In this era of globalization and the resulting threat to small-scale societies it is the author’s hope that this book will contribute to the protection of the work of traditional weavers and to the recognition of their unique cultural heritage.
