Mamuli: Female strength

AUD $32.00AUD $75.00

Copper mamuli pendant with hook (pendant size around 5x4cm)

Include a. magnificent Woven Wire necklace to complete the set

Mamuli is an ornament of the Sumbanese people and has been found dating back 100s of years on the west coast of Sumba. The symbol represents female sexuality and reproductive power and is often included as part of a wedding dowry. ⁠ The mamuli shape represents female genitalia, symbolising the woman as the giver of life.

On our recent trip we not only discovered mamuli copper pendants, but this powerful symbol appears in weaving motifs both in Sumba and Flores. The pieces we bought and are selling at Tradisi are not antique, heirlooms or taken from a traditional setting. Our pieces are made to wear and use. We hope to respectfully share this powerful symbol of femininity across cultural borders.⁠

Our handcrafted Woven Wire jewellery collection is both stunning and unique.  Inspired by traditional hats used in ceremony off the island of Sumbawa, our range brings old ideas into a modern setting.  Woven with a range of coloured wire we have earrings, necklaces and our stylish snake bracelets.

The wire is light and transparent often creating a beautiful shadow effect.
