Cushion CoverTraditional Textiles
This cushion is made up of a traditional cloth woven on Timor using natural dyes and traditional ikat motifs. The solid coloured backing is made by the weavers from Hamba Parengu in East Sumba using the brilliant indigo dye process of which they are famous.
The motif on this cushion is called lenuk or turtle and symbolizes fertility. A turtle lives in water which is so essential to these dry lands and it bears many eggs. Weavers believe that in making this motif, she is requesting the ancestor to make the land fertile.
These handmade natural dyed cushions would be exquisite on a couch, chair or bed.
