I would like to draw the forum's attention to an amazing body of information on Indonesian ikat textiles which has been amassed by Peter ten Hoopen (whom I am glad to say has also joined the forum!) This growing compendium - or on-line museum - can be found at http://www.ikat.us/ - slightly confusingly called the Pusaka collection which is based on Peter's collection of Indonesian ikat textiles. He is clearly a passionate collector very badly infected by Monique's textile virus! Be warned, such a passion can lead not only to the amassing of many camphor chests of textiles but also a burning desire to research, compile and share information on these textiles. Clearly a man after my own heart!

I am so impressed by the depth of information on each textile. There is also a link at the bottom of each entry to contribute comments. Also see the cultural information on the different groups. Very good information on museum collections, literature on the subject, links etc. The more you explore the site the more you realise what a very rich source of information is there at the click of a mouse. A labour of love clearly bordering on obsession!
