Abstract

In the 1960s, the tie and dye textiles were spread across the world that often mistaken by the community as ‘Pelangi’ cloth, although the design characteristics were different. The objectives of this study are to identify the elements and to show how the textile motifs design features are. This research used field study methods, interviews and library studies. The novelty of this study is to reveal the actual character to avoid misinterpretation and misperception of the community.
