The rigors of the dry season

Picture 2 of 11

The Atoni and Tetun peoples of West Timor plant relatively drought-resistant crops: corn, sorghum, and a dry-field variety of rice called padi ladang. But in Timor, they talk of three main seasons: the rainy season, the dry season, and the season of starvation, before the rains begin. Weaving brings vital dry-season income to families across Timor, and Threads of Life provides fair trade prices for their work.
