1 College Street

Worcester, MA 01610

Gallery hours: M-F 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.; Sat noon - 5 p.m.; closed Columbus Day October 10th and Thanksgiving November 24-27

Pua kumbu are magnificent, intricately dyed, hand-loomed cotton ikat textiles once woven in profusion in longhouses in Malaysia’s Sarawak and in nearby Kalimantan, Indonesia. These ceremonial blankets were once religious objects par excellence for the Iban and the related Dayak women who wove them. Pua kumbu and the closely connected kain kebat ceremonial skirts were designed to be extraordinarily beautiful  to attract the attention of the gods, to invite them to longhouse rituals, called gawai festivals. 

 This exhibition invites visitors to view historic pua and kain kebat selected from the remarkable, comprehensive collection of Dr. John G. Kreifeldt; these textiles have never been shown to the public before. Kreifeldt, emeritus engineering professor from Tufts University, contributed a catalogue highlighting textile motifs; curator Dr. Susan Rodgers, emerita anthropologist from Holy Cross, offers anthropological essays. Cost: No cost, open to the public
