The ikat motif on this textile is called kai ne’e natam kosat is a six hooked motif with a central diamond shape within. Kosat is a reference to an old family name within the community. Motifs in Timor textiles are not random and always represent relationships between humans, nature and the Divine.

To attain the deep colour of this traditional ikat textile requires mastery of the time consuming red dye and mordanting techniques. The red dye is made using the bark of the root of the Morinda citrifolia tree. Multiple dye applications are needed to reach the depth of this colour which can take up to 3 months to complete just in the dying process. 

This stunning ikat cotton cloth is beautiful as a wall hanging or bed throw.
