On the north coast of East Java there are villages with a tradition of weaving textiles from locally grown, handspun cotton. However, thriving local demand for cheap, synthetically dyed batik on commercial cotton has led to the steep decline of handspun and natural dyed work. Addressing this, Threads of Life works with local farmers, spinners, and weavers to commission the continued production of the traditional cloths.

One of three customary sizes, the jarit is a piece of cloth long enough to form a sling that circles the body twice from one shoulder to the opposite hip. Bought as undyed cotton, these jarit have been dyed at the Threads of Life natural dye studio in Bali using indigo dye from Strobilanthes cusia or a rust brown dye from Ceriops tagal. Inconsistencies in the tightness of the handspinning and the dye saturation of this unrefined cotton give a subtle and beautiful character to these pieces.

Plain weave, single panel, handspun cotton, natural dyes. Approximately 300 x 80 cm / 118 x 31.5 in
