These include some of the most dramatic textiles from the region such as the famous warp ikat-patterned textiles of Sumba along with many textiles that are of great importance to the cultural heritage of the region, such as the Tai tubeskirt cloths with weft ikat gray heron motifs and the double ikat-cloths from Tenganan, Bali.
