"Ce pua sungkit en parfait état met en valeur la technique complexe de tissage par ajout de fils successifs, propre à la région de Sarawak et à certaines parties de la région du Kalimantan occidental. Ce motif est connu sous le nom de buah bunut (fruit de la mangue) ou buah bintang bertabur (étoile dispersée). Très recherché car exceptionnellement rare, surtout à une telle échelle, ce motif est très probablement dérivé de ceux des tissus commerciaux indiens en coton des XVIIème et XVIIIème siècles, imprimés avec une forme d'arabesque imitant les soies ikat patola. Ce motif semble aussi avoir des points communs avec les tapis "Lotto" d'Asie mineure. (voir Thomas Murray, "In Pursuit of a Prototype", HALI 112, 2000, pp. 89-91)."


"This essentially perfect-condition pua sungkit shows the complex weft-wrapping technique unique to Sarawak and parts of West Kalimantan. The pattern, known as buah bunut (mango fruit) or buah bintang bertabur (scattered star), is exceptionally rare, especially in such scale, and much sought after, being most likely derived from 17th/18th-century Indian cotton trade cloths, block printed with an arabesque form imitating double ikatpatola silks and sharing commonalities of motif with Anatolian ‘Lotto’ carpets (see Thomas Murray, ‘In Pursuit of a Prototype’, HALI 112, 2000, pp.89-91)."
