This beautiful earth-red shoulder cloth is a testament to the revival of traditional weaving in southern Lembata near Lamalera. Threads of Life’s early efforts to revive traditionally produced textiles where natural dye techniques had all but vanished are brought to life in this cloth.

The diamond shape design is called Befajak, representing a betelnut basket made from lontar palm (Borassus flabellifera). A betelnut basket is offered to visitors as a show of respect.

Information about the makers will be supplied with each cloth.
Warp ikat, single panel, twisted fringe, commercial cotton, natural dyes. Ikat tied, dyed, and woven in Wulandoni, Lembata, 2018. Size 160 x 18 cm / 63 x 7 in
