There are Indian 16 yard brown wefts at one end and label indication that it was made by a Chinese in Central Java. Design wise it is a combination of the parang rusak (broken knives) pattern with an Indo-European kepala. There is a block stamped tag, marked with a 5, in the corner most likely from the trader.--Itie van Hout
