A tablet weave in progress

Picture 11 of 11

The weavers of Mamasa in southwestern Toraja weave colorful straps and belts on small looms with a square tablet at each end. The tablets were once art objects, carved from tortoise-shell and other fine materials. Today, all the old cards have been sold to collectors, and tablet weaving is fading away. I Made Maduarta and Daud hope to revive weaving in Mamasa as successfully as in Karataun.
