1980s Balinese Painted Kaftan Dress (Deadstock)

Gorgeous Indonesian made kaftan sack-dress with large hand-painted flowers and original tag attached. Lightweight black fabric (not labeled but feels like cotton) has intricate cut-out neckline with red painted diamonds and scalloped edges on the sleeves and hem. The simple shape drapes nicely with wide shoulders that act as sleeves & a little extra room at the hips. Small slits on either side at the hem.
**Please see photos and condition notes below on a couple of repairs I made to the dress.

CONDITION: Very Good! Deadstock with original tag; however there was some damage in storage? namely along the neckline where I found a couple of holes / tears that I have since repaired & patched.

Otherwise excellent / like-new condition!
