Mau Ana

Shoulder Scarf

Mau ana is a single panel woman’s shoulder cloth. The weavers of Amanuban have a wide range of textiles with various techniques including ikat, supplementary warp wrap called buna and supplementary warp patterning called sotis. There are also a few remote areas that are able to weave a kelim pattern locally called naisa. Traditionally, a textile with sotis would only be worn by someone of nobility.

The motif teke or gecko along with the frog and crocodile are all representations of the ancestor.
