Traditional Textile of Timor
 
Many Timorese still wear their selimut-blanket, selendang scarf or tais sarong daily and often have an extremely fine one for Sundays and special occasions such as market day for which many Timorese may walk up to 20km to buy or trade or simply to socialize and renew allegiances . 

No two weavings are the same. A woman receives her traditional motif and construction, which varies according to her family and where they live, and she may never weave the same story twice. Each handwoven piece has a story, it has a meaning. It is possible to tell a persons clan and village down to 3-5km as the textiles are area specific. The few exceptions to this rule are the cross-road pieces where intermarriage had created a blend of 2 unique styles.

Commercial factory threads and dyes are making great inroads, and the weavers of futus ikat tie-dying or sotis lotis supplementary weft weave or float weave who use handspun cotton and natural indigo dye are becoming fewer.
