In Bali, smaller, single pieces such as this textile are worn by men as hip cloths, known as saput, over the top of a sarong or songket. Once functioning as a holder for the wearer’s keris, the saput is now worn when more formal dress is required. The charmingly simple central motif is called kupu kupu, meaning butterfly.
This is a beautifully light cotton fabric to wear on a chilly night. It was woven by Darmini, who has been with the Threads of Life team since 2003.
