Ferdinand Aichhorn's passion for traditional Asian textiles began in Jakarta, Indonesia, in 1977. This volume presents those items of the collection produced in the ikat technique of dyeing and weaving. Salzburg architect Ferdinand Aichhorn is an aficionado of traditional Asian textiles, which he has been collecting for over 40 years. On his frequent and extensive travels mainly in Indonesia, India, Burma, Thailand and Cambodia he seeks out towns, villages and textile workshops where rare and ancient techniques are still cultivated. The main focus of his collection is on the resist techniques batik, plangi and particularly ikat. The collection is completed by a wide variety of embroideries, as well as quilts, appliques, prints, felt rugs and an extensive selection of Kashmiri textiles dating from the 18th century up to the present day."
