Mau AnaShoulder Cloth
The weavers of Amanuban have a wide range of textiles with various techniques including ikat, supplementary warp wrap called buna and supplementary warp patterning called sotis. There are a few remote areas that still weave kelim patterns locally called naisa.
The buna or warp-wrap patterning on this cloth depicts a ma’kaif referring to a hooked pattern that represents interconnectedness. This textile is lovely hung on a wall or used as a table runner.
Supplementary warp-wrap patterning, single panel, open fringe, commercial cotton, natural dyes, Made by Meri Tana in Timor, 2019.
