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 is called pika bu’uf and refers to the base of a plate. This is likely a reference to the white porcelain plates traded by the Chinese in the early centuries for Sandalwood and other resources.
