Hinggi or men's wrap from Sumba in "mahang" pattern, a depiction of a climbing lion protecting the crown which clearly inspired by Dutch coat of arms. The use of Dutch traditional design on sumba textile signaling that the textile was meant to be worn by a highest class of nobleman or "maramba". Done in very neat and dense weaving with 4 color including red, blue and black made out of natural dyes. Original pattern was derived from Rende, but this textile made in Mauliru - Sumba.
Hi'i worapi or non ceremonial men's wrap/shawl consist in three rows of main pattern, fill with branching flower motifs in asymetrical direction while the border unusually ended with knotted fringe instead of being twisted and completed with fine end stitching alongside the warp. Made out of handspun with natural dyes, an excelent old piece from Savu / Sabu - East Nusa Tenggara
Ei Worapi or non ceremonial Savunese sarong with dark, but still blue, instead of black indigo base; odd number of "ro'a" or thin indigo band on each sides of sarong panels and the existence of red color on the joint seams called "béka" indicates that this sarong was made by hubi ae moiety. Done handsomely out of a handspun cotton yarn and natural dyes in Savu - NTT.
