Day and Night

The two halves of this pattern represent ‘Day and Night’, a reference to Indonesia, where it was customary to wear light clothing during the evening and dark clothing during the day. This was originally ‘a single’ that has been widened. The original width of 1 yard (0,9144 m) was widened to 1.20 m.
