              The Tropenmuseum Amsterdam houses about 12,000 textile objects that were collected over a period of 160 years. The majority of the objects were amassed during the time that Indonesia was a Dutch colony, the former Netherlands-Indies. This study presents the collection and the sto...ries of the makers and users of the fabrics as well as those of the collectors who brought them to the Netherlands, who have studied and exhibited them. The textiles originate from all over the archipelago, from Aceh on Sumatra, to Tinambar in the east. A small part of the collection was made in the Netherlands for artistic or commercial reasons.

              Research confirms that carrying infants develops their intelligence and their capacity for trust, affection, intimacy, love and happiness. Intriguingly, it also shows that the least violent countries are those where babies are constantly carried. Divided into two parts, this book... shows that historically not carrying babies is the exception.
