Description

This beautiful textile is a genuine handwoven Indonesian tapestry textile from Amanuban in West Timor in the East Nusa Tenggara region of Indonesia. The textile was made using a traditional back-strap loom and hand-dyed partly using natural vegetable dyes and partly using synthetic dyes.

The production of this type of hand-woven and naturally dyed textile is recognized as an ancient art, which is passed on from generation to generation, normally from mother to daughter. This type of hand weaving, normally done by women, is highly labour-intensive, extraordinarily complex and can take months to complete.

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  https://www.connect-indonesia.org
