Description

This is a genuine Indonesian, handwoven West Sumba, Ratenggaro ikat textile.  This was woven from hand-dyed yarns using natural dyes.

The motifs were designed using the ikat method and woven using a back-strap loom.  The complex ikat processes and the natural dye applications required a huge amount of time and effort to produce the desired quality, both weave and colour. A piece of cloth such as this is hand-woven by women, and it is recognised as an ancient art, which passed from generation to generation normally from mother to daughter.

We are proud to let you know that part of the proceeds from the sale of this cloth will go to support community and environmental project managed by Connect Indonesia in partnership with the weavers. We have been donating reading glasses to senior artisans all over Indonesia since 2013, and this program is still going strong.  We are currently managing several small environmental projects where we work with the weavers to plant trees that yield natural dye colours.

Information on the project can be found in  http://www.connect-indonesia.org
