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 centipede or biklusu or small gecko. Geckos and crocodiles are both powerful motifs as they are seen to be symbolic of the ancestor.

Floating warp patterning, single panel, twisted fringe, handspun cotton, natural dyes.
Made by the Tae Matani weaving group, Amanuban, Timor. 2019
