Lying midway between Sumba and Timor, Sabu is a small island that is home to a strong culture. Although many islanders have converted to Christianity, the traditional belief system, Jingi Tiu, still prevails, and textiles are an important aspect of ceremonial life.
Known locally as heleda, this single panel ikat shoulder scarf is worn by men and women for ceremonies and special occasions. The ikat motif is called lane hawu.
