Just added - a new article on an archaic loom in Indonesia, with Indian origins


A new article by journal editors Chris Buckley and Sandra Sardjono describes a loom from the village of Balai Cacang in Minankabau, Sumatra. Though this loom has previously been described by several authors, a key feature ... a warping system based on Indian prototype ... has previously been overlooked. This discovery is of significance for understanding the history of the development of weaving in the west of Indonesia.
