Tais cloth is a form of traditional weaving created by the women of East Timor. An essential part of the nation’s cultural heritage, tais weavings are used for ceremonial adornment, home decor and personal apparel.
Using mostly cotton threads, the cloth is created during the island’s dry season, almost entirely by hand. A single tais can take anywhere from several days to a year, depending on the complexity of design and variety of colors used.
Dyes are used to create bright colors in the tais; these are mixed from plants like taun, kinur, and teka. Other dyes are derived from mango skin, potato leaf, cactus flowers, and turmeric.
You can use this bag as a coffee bag, aeropress bag, handbag, iPad bag and many other uses.
