This woman’s sarong, is made using natural dyed cotton threads. The fine pattern on this cloth is called buna which is a supplementary technique whereby individual weft threads are wrapped around the length-wise warp threads producing a pattern. It takes up to eighteen months to complete this textile due to this time-consuming buna process.

The motif is called lan mese and refers to the interconnecting ancestors – a path that if you follow will be guided and protected by the ancestor. You can make out the hands and feet of the ancestor figure along with the neck and face with large ears.

This textile is lovely on as a wall hanging or used as throw on the bed or over a couch.
