Finely woven Iban women’s kain skirt, from Kapit, circa 1940 with “eye of the green pigeon” and bamboo pattern, from the Kapit area. Fine and tight weaves like this, indicate that owner was from a high status. There is one repair noted in enlargements. The ikat is made from all handspun and natural dyes while the colored bands are commercial thread. L: 115cm/42.5in and W: 57cm/22.5in
