Description

Timor

West Timor has an enormous variety of handmade textiles with styles varying between each region.

Buna Weave

This style of weaving is amazing to watch as the weaver individual wraps each thread around the warp to produce the pattern.  It is done on a backstrap loom that sits on the ground and can take anywhere from 1-24 months to produce one piece of cloth.
