The Language of Cloth

A small collection of turn of the 19th/20th century Batiks from Java has opened on the second floor of the Asian Art Museum.

Some of the wax designs are as intricate as anything seen on a Persian rug.

Last weekend, the gift shop was sponsoring a trunk show by textile collector Daniel Gundlach above of handmade Southeast Asian textiles.

Daniel also has a holiday pop-up store in the Mission District called The Language of Cloth (click here for the website) at 650-A Guerrero Street, between 18th and 19th, just up the street from Tartine Bakery. The hours are 10-6 Friday through Sunday, and his stuff is beautiful and affordable.

A three-month contract job for a San Francisco insurance company is ending tomorrow, and I am rewarding myself with a trip to Palm Springs for most of December, so it seemed like a perfect time to buy the blue sarong above for poolside loungewear.

You're going to look really classy poolside! Hope you have a good trip and a memorable Thanksgiving.
