When Wallace was struck down by a near-fatal case of malaria in 1861, authorities from the Dutch East Indies Company took advantage of his weakened state and confiscated the cloth. The loss of the “Red Rag” was a significant blow to Wallace, who had come to view it as a symbol of his travels and scientific achievements.
