Antique ceremonial sarongs from Bali. These beautiful cotton sarongs can be worn, used as a table cloth or perfect at the beach. So many uses for these antique, soft cotton batiks. Batik is an Indonesian technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to the entire textile. The price reflects one and the sizes vary. Please inquire.
These sarongs were sourced in the spirit of wabi-sabi, a Japanese philosophy that beauty can be found in imperfection and impermanence. It is a beauty of things modest and humble. A beauty of things unconventional. It is the opposite of vulgarity. The costs of achieving this kind of minimalism are seemingly inconsistent with its mission of aesthetic humility. This kind of luxury is for a select few: The Emperor of Japan had a wabi garden. Wabi is for people who already have a lot.
