Description

This offer is for a stunning East Sumba Hand-woven Supplementary Warp Traditional Pahikung scarf which is great to be used as a table or bed runner. The technique used to produce this scarf is much like a tapestry technique. No ikat processes involved in the making of this textile.

East Sumba is truly famous for its Hinggi ikat textiles, probably one of the most pictorial ikat designs from the Indonesian archipelago. Alongside the Hinggi ikat textiles, East Sumba also produces the equally amazing Pahikung textiles like this table runner we offer on this listing, handwoven using a back-strap loom and dyed using natural vegetable dyes. The designs are produced using supplementary warp techniques with immense geometric designs. You will often find that pahikung designs are combined with warp ikat designs.

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
