Sekomandi

Ceremonial Hanging

Sekomandi textiles are used to decorate the traditional houses during ceremonies as a sign that the entire ritual cycle had been performed such as weddings.

The motif ulu karua refers to the eight traditional leaders who have specific roles and responsibilities for the well-being of their community. According to legend, an ancestor was meditating in a cave when he saw an old tattered cloth containing these motifs. He brought this cloth back to his community and the motifs on the cloth were woven once again.

Warp ikat, two panels stitched together, open fringe, commercial cotton, natural dyes. Tied dyed and woven by Karataun weavers in Sulawesi, 2019.
