Default Looking for book on Indonesian dress/weapons

I was wondering if anyone on the forum could direct me to a good book/books that reference Indonesian dress and weapons. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Well I don't know about Indonesian dress, but weapons:

Traditional Weapons of the Indonesian Archipelago
by Albert G. Van Zonneveld

This would be a good start.

By the same author, Traditional Weapons of Borneo. The Attire of the Head Hunters. Volume 1: Shields and War Clothes might be of interest, though certainly Borneo might be too far afield.

If anything is available in respect of clothing, Ethnographic Art Books in Leiden will have it. I'm not posting a link because I suspect that might infringe our rules, but a google search will take you there.

I suggest you contact them and ask, don't try to find something by browsing the site.
