Torana Tribal: textiles from Indonesian and Southwest China

Textiles from China, including Guizhou, Guangxi, Yunnan and Hainan Island, and tribal textiles, masks, tribal art and ikat from Indonesia and other parts of Southeast Asia.

Click on the links in the menu at left to look at the galleries: new material is added from time to time so please check back. Prices on request.

Ages of items are an estimate, generally based on looking closely at dyes and weaving method. The best workmanship and design tends to be found on older pieces, which are also characterized by handspun thread and natural dyes.

If you'd like to be on my mailing list for occasional updates and a heads-up on items about to be added to the site please drop me a line at, and if you are looking for something in particular feel free to let me know.
