Bena Moca Pearl Earrings
Tenun ikat is the traditional fabric weaving process in many parts of Eastern Indonesia whereby strands of cotton yarn are tied and immersed in dyes (traditionally natural dyes) and then woven into fabrics using a hand loom. The resulting fabrics are used primarily as shawls, sarong, and blankets, both in everyday life and for cultural events and ceremonies. Tenun ikat weaving is done almost exclusively by women and is a skill that has been passed down from mothers to daughters for generations.
