about this item

Ferdinand Aichhorn's passion for traditional Asian textiles began in Jakarta, Indonesia, in 1977. This volume is devoted to batik, including the resist techniques of wax method, ?tie and dye”, block printing and textile painting. 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, appliqués, block prints, felt rugs and an extensive selection of Kashmiri textiles dating from the 18th century up to the present day.
