Ikat scarf from Roti in Indonesia, probably western Roti.  Unlike similar examples, this item has parrots on each side.  I'm almost certain the cotton is hand spun and the dyes are natural.  Similar examples can be seen on the Pusaka collection site: https://ikat.us/ikat_042.php    https://ikat.us/ikat_141.php   https://ikat.us/ikat_011.php.  I bought this in Lombok in 1985.  Weight - 308 grams.
