From the eastern coast of Sumba Island, lies a knowledge to create a woven textile called Pahikung. Pahikung is a technique to weave on horizontal back tension looms that works with supplementary warps to decorate textiles with a boundless range of geometric and zoomorphic designs, many incorporating the rich iconography of Sumba Island. East Sumba is the only region in the entire Malay Archipelago where supplementary warp decoration has reached such a high degree of refinement!

Lau Pahikung or Pahikung Weaving, with such fine skill to weave, was restricted to wear by Maramba or those with nobility. However, todays, anyone could wear Pahikung without any restriction.

Exclusive from our discovery is Hinggi (Shoulder or Hip Wrappers) made by Umbo Lali, a legend that we were very honored to know!
