Mau AnaWoman’s Shoulder 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 sotis patterning on this cloth depicts a hooked pattern called ma’kaif that represents interconnectedness.
Supplementary warp patterning, single panel, twisted fringe, commercial cotton, natural dyes.
