Mau Ana ManekaShawl
Timor has 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 kilem pattern. This lovely textile requires an amazing amount of time to complete as it combines both the time consuming warp wrap buna technique and ikat.
This was a joint effort between a mother and daughter as the mother knew how to do the ikat process and the daughter was able to make the patternng for the buna warp wrap technique.The motif makaif refers to a small hook pattern representing interconnectedness.
This textile is lovely on as a wall hanging or used as throw on the bed or over a couch.
