Weaver Getreda Obehetan embellished this cloth with subtle accents in sotis, a floating warp technique common in the Amarasi region. The locals call this motif of interlocking hooks kaimanfafa. Getreda Obehetan made her dyes from local forest plants. She extracted the red pigment from the crushed roots of the morinda tree. Morinda red binds to cotton only in the presence of a mixture of other plants and minerals called a mordant.
