Geringsing has become synonymous with double-ikat, the demanding process whereby warp and weft threads are ikat-dyed independently before weaving, such that the perpendicular patterns exactly coincide in the finished cloth.

Geringsing, however, literally means “against sickness”. The textiles are considered magically protective and are used during Tengananese rituals as offerings or clothing. Prembon means an assortment and refers to the use of several motifs appearing on one cloth.

Double ikat, single panel, handspun cotton, natural dyes, Tied, dyed and woven in Tenganan, Bali, 2011.
