Textiles of Indonesia
The Tropenmuseum Amsterdam houses about 12,000 textile objects that were collected over a period of 160 years. The majority of the objects were amassed during the time that Indonesia was a Dutch colony, the former Netherlands-Indies and
originate from all over the archipelago, from Aceh on Sumatra, to Tinambar in the east.
This book presents the museum's collection and the stories of the makers and users of the fabrics as well as those of the collectors who brought them to the Netherlands, who have studied and exhibited them.
