Lawo Mangga is a three-part textile sewn into a tube worn by a woman of the Lio-Ende ethnic group. This is composed of bands of white ikat motifs on a blue-black background positioned in the center portion of the texitle. The prominent bands of solid blue-black appear on the head and foot ends.

The ikat motif on this textile pea is said to be the name of the first person who was inspired to make this motif. The motif is believed to have been inspired by trade cloths from India. The process to make the colours on this textile require months of time consuming focus using traditional recipes. The deep blue black indigo reflects the skill of the weaver.
