Wastra Poleng

Ceremonial Cloth

The black and white poleng textile is used by the Balinese to wrap shrines, large trees, rocks or other auspicious objects. The black and white squares represent the complementary forces of chaos and order and remind the Balinese to balance these forces.

Threads of Life works with farmers and weavers across Bali to re-establish natural-dye and sacred weaving traditions and to revitalize the role played by these important textiles.

Plain weave, single panel, twisted fringe, commercial cotton, natural dyes. Made by Ni Wayan Ladri in Bali, 2019.
