Sarong from Coromandel

This sarong comes from Coromandel, India. It was made by means of a tjanting: a wooden tool with a metal cup and tiny spout out of which the wax seeps.

While its date is unknown, it is certain to have been produced before 1905. The batik was kept in the former ‘Exo (exotic fabrics) drawing room’, where it served as a source of inspiration. Vlisco’s design department gave it to the Pieter Fentener van Vlissingen Museum when it was founded in 1960. Since then it has been the property of what is now the Pieter Fentener van Vlissingen Foundation.
