Handspun sarong from East Flores

A beautiful tube shaped Flores sarong in thick, soft hand spun and hand-woven cotton. The sarong has hand sewn decorative seams and is made of two identical pieces woven on a backstrap loom and then sewn together. This is the traditional long tube shaped garment which can be worn in all sorts of ways. 

This piece comes from the traditional village of Lawolewok near Larantuka - in the far eastern tip of Flores island. Woven by an incredibly skilled weaver, this lovely textile incorporates strips of floating weft weaving technique alongside ikat. Hard to tell how old it is, but handspinning cotton yarn has now almost completely died out.

Size: approx 110 x 170 cms (when opened out)

Colours: all natural vegetable dyes in browns, blue and ivory
