Stunning ikat from Sumba

We have always loved the brilliant and bold warp ikat textiles made on the island of Sumba. The motifs are full of meaning and the textiles themselves are traditionally made and used for ceremonies and exchanges vital to Sumbanese community life. Luckily they are also made to sell, and we were so happy to spend time on Sumba just this year and tracking down the few places where fine, naturally dyed, hand woven cloths are still being made.
