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.

Kain seliran (a half part of ikat hinggi from Sumba) in ruha/reindeer pattern. The new generation of ikat Sumba is done in more attractive yet provocative composition and pattern, give the result of unrecognizable fabric origin. This fabric actually made in Kambera, but its oversized pattern similar to the depiction in Rende village. Ruha or reindeer pattern that dominates this fabric is a representation of animal that once could only hunt by Sumbanese nobleman. From Lambanapu - East Sumba

Quite old ei worapi or non ceremonial sarong from Savu in faded morinda and indigo.
