Sari to Sarong brings together some of the greatest surviving examples of traditional Indian and Indonesian textiles to demonstrate the remarkable exchanges of ideas, materials, designs, and imagery--royal and religious--between the two great cultures of India and Indonesia over the last 1000 years. The publication shows not only the great variety and beauty of the cloths but also the many sources of inspiration carried across the Indian Ocean by sailors and merchants, priests and warriors.

Drawn from the National Gallery of Australia’s famous Asian textiles collection, the silks, cottons, batiks, gold brocades, tie-dyes, and embroideries feature Ramayana epics, elephant and camel processions, trading ship and floral designs from Indian chintz.
