All our textiles - traditionally known as ‘Tais’ (ti-esh) - are woven on back-strap looms. These looms are portable, inexpensive and easy to construct. Conversely, dyeing and weaving techniques are complex and time consuming, requiring patience and concentration. Patterns and motifs have great meaning, inherited from the elders and constantly represent something more than a mere decoration.
