The solid coloured backing is made by the weavers from Hamba Parengu in East Sumba using the brilliant indigo dye process of which they are famous. Wala mangata is a poisonous flower. It usually grows during the rainy season between January to February. The wala manggata plant is often planted around a crop to keep birds away.
