WW: Tenun Ruteng

Tenun Ruteng, the newest addition to my Wastra Indonesia collection :).

Ruteng is the capital of Manggarai District, Flores, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. One petit island filled with natural wonders and fascinating cultures, including their traditional handwoven fabrics.


I was privileged to get this new piece of beautiful cloth and some snaps of the wonderful and skillful lady who was the master of this artful masterpiece. It took around 3 months to finish one full cloth. Truly a labour of love...lots of love.





I can't wait to receive my newest Tenun Ruteng here in NYC.

Join us on (almost) Wordless Wednesday and have a great bloghopping experience :)

  5. What a great skill! I love the art of weaving. We have a willow bush in our front yard that we cut off the branches to give to an artist that weaves. My husband wants to cut them off for us to try a project next.
