I thought that I would alert forum members to a new special interest group which Vernon Kedit has set up on Facebook. Sorry, as I hear the groans from non-Facebook users - I have to admit to being a very, very reluctant user myself!

The special interest group on Iban textiles is TENUN IBAN It is a closed group but I think you can see what is there and can also ask to be included in the group. Vernon is encouraging the Iban to record their textiles and it is very interesting to see what is emerging out of the closet. (Some intriguing comments on how some of the textiles have been stored!) I am enjoying not only seeing the old and venerable textiles appearing from family collections but also photos of modern examples - especially of sungkit - being worn today. Vernon is very keen to try and record what is still in existence. He is encouraging the participants of the group to post in English as well as Iban to share with a wider audience. Some good translations of terminology from Iban to English.
