sash

Sash, selendang rang rang, woven on a yellow warp which is left loose at the ends to form fringes. Warp threads in groups with wide spaces between the groups, leaving a pronounced stripe in the warp. The weft is of various colours added in lozenge shapes in a tapestry technique, which leaves holes where there is a gap in the warp. The colours of the weft are, from the outside edge in: yellow (at each selvedge, where the shapes formed are only part of a lozenge, thus forming inward-pointing triangles); blue (a single row of lozenges alternating with those in the adjacent band); and then on one side of the cloth red lozenges, on the other orange. These are in groups of four lozenges, forming a larger lozenge. The central band is of groups of four purple lozenges.
