Plewo Doi by Noesa

Ple·wo Do·i

"to introduce"
in Sikka language (Maumere, Flores, NTT)

These are the people who had the important role in Plewo Doi, the cultural event that took place at Museum Tekstil and Dia.Lo.Gue Artspace on 2-24 May 2015. With this event, they aimed to introduce Sikka’s culture, the process of tenun ikat and natural dye. 

They are (left to right) Octoriko, Cendy, Daniel David, and Annisa.

They are the women behind the beautiful kain tenun ikat Sikka (Maumere, Flores, NTT).

This fabric-making process requires quite a long time: from cotton planting, natural colors making, cotton-to-yarn spinning, pattern tying, natural dyeing, and weaving.

No wonder, it takes more patience and persistence in the process of making. I am… truly amazed!

...And the photo below proves that we are still working together since we were in the college. 

I am so happy to be a part of Plewo Doi at Dia.Lo.Gue Artspace! Hopefully, there will be a chance like this in the future. Hopefully this kind of event can be held every year, because the main objective is to approach the young generation about the culture of Indonesia.

Keep on the good work, guys!
