This is an Ayotupas design shoulder cloth was made from high-quality cotton yarns. The cloth is fairly thick and heavy and therefore very durable. This type of cloth is produced using backstrap loom. The motif has been imparted into the textile by lifting different combinations of warp threads. A piece of cloth such as this is hand-woven by women, and it is recognised as ancient art, where the skills are passed from generation to generation normally from mother to daughter.
These textiles were obtained directly from our weavers during our visit to Amanuban and Kefa Districts with Connect Indonesia in October 2017. We are proud to let you know that part of the proceeds from the sale of this cloth will go to support an amazing project by Connect Indonesia, The Charity, where reading glasses are donated to support senior weavers to see better and to work more productively.
