RŪPA x Kanekes | Tinunan
Showcasing a beautiful union between mother nature and its beings, Tinunan is completely handmade by the ancient Kanekes tribe from 100% unbleached cotton yarns using the Indonesian tie dye bonding technique, known as "Jumputan".
Dimension: 60cm(w) x 200 cm(l)
Handloomed on a manual backstrap loom to obtain the texture within the fabric, this large-sized throw scarf is then handknotted to attain its motifs and handdyed in a rich dyebath.
Our artisans utilise native Indigofera Tinctoria plants and palm sugar blocks for the Indigo hue, native Indonesian Mahogany tree bark and natural crystal salt fixation for the Mahogany hue and native Heartwood of Cockspur thorn and natural alum as mordants for the Canary hue.
