Ulos Vintage04

Indonesian Heritage Textile

The Batak “Ulos” handwoven textile, the original hand woven pieces feel rougher to the touch – are not merely made to wear as clothing, but are significant symbols of status, serve as precious heirlooms, or are ceremonial gifts during rites in human’s life cycle from births and weddings to deaths.

With modernization, the ATBM (alat tenun bukan mesin) or the non-mechanized upright loom was introduced. Purchase by on-line for use in modern designer dresses as below.
