Tatibin Ceremonial Ship Cloth
Used in Sumatra at rituals, ceremonies and family life events.
Tatibins are larger than Tampans and are more important textiles as there are fewer of these available within the family.
Has white silk or metallic thread woven in – which is rare.
An excellent example of woven art!

This item has spent a lifetime being used for the purpose of its creation with the original artist/user. Signs of this life lived heartily may be present on the piece in the form of stains, thread loss, loose threads, holes, tears, color run and other imperfections. Therefore the condition must be assumed to be “not” perfect. More photos of such imperfections will be provided on request.
