TnanaCenterfield for Man’s Hip 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 ikat patterning on this exquisite mud dyed cloth is called teke or gecko. The gecko, frog and crocodile are all representations of the ancestor.
