Tenun Pahikung Sumba Warna Alam
Sumba is well known for their amazing tenun ikat, but another well known type of handweaving from Sumba is the Pahikung, which is a weaving technique used on horizontal back tension looms that employs supplementary warps to embellish textiles with an infinite range of geometric and zoomorphic designs, many incorporating the rich iconography of Sumba Island. This sarong shows a combination of both techniques : ikat and pahikung.
Every motif is one-of-a-kind, made in sarong shape (cylinder)
