The textiles of Miomafo area in West Timor are known for their indigo work with intricate ikat. Motifs used include mak’aif, atoni, beso and noa no’o.
We have curated these two textiles as a set to hang on the wall or to place separate. Both contain the motif mak’aif mnutu which refers a small finely made hook pattern and refers to interconnectedness between clans and family groups.
