Literature

Nearly all books covering Indonesian textiles have sections on Sumba, some more in depth than others. We particularly like Decorative Arts of Sumba, published by the Museum voor Volkenkunde in Rotterdam, later renamed Wereldmuseum. Edited by the museum's director, it has some excellent contributions on the cultural backgrounds of Sumba ikat textiles - and it shows off a few of the museum's spectacular Sumba hinggi, the oldest in the world. Highly recommended are also Gewebte Botschaften / Woven Messages, Brigitte Khan Majlis's bilingual book with a good section on Sumba, the beautifully written Early Indonesian Textiles by Robert Holmgren and Anita Spertus, and Jill Forshee's engaging and insightful Between the Folds. Interesting cultural background is given by Georges Breguet in his article The Life and Death of Tamu Rambu Yuliana, Princess of Sumba.
