Timor Mud DyesWith Fringe Cushion Cover
This cushion is made by the weavers of Amanuban in West Timor using cotton fibers and supplementary warp technique. We have left the fringe intact to maintain the integrity of the shoulder cloth that this cushion was made from. The solid coloured back panel of this cushion is made from commercial cotton, woven by the community of weavers in Timor and mud-dyed. Due to the multiple applications of tannins and iron rich mud with multiple washings, the black is very colourfast.
The motif on this textile is called ma’kaif refers to a hooked pattern that represents interconnectedness between the ancestor, kin and the land.
These handmade natural dyed cushions would be exquisite on a couch, chair or bed.
Woven in Amanuban, Timor, 2019.
