Description The nineteenth and early twentieth centuries were a period of tumultuous social change for the Batak of North Sumatra. That change was registered in their clothing and handwoven textiles. This book examines factors which inspired these people to wear Malay and European styles on a daily basis and to reserve the use of their hip- and shouldercloths for ceremonial occasions. - Source: Powell's Books
