Ibu Wihelmina Nesi weaving in Manunain. Manunain is a village in the old kingdom of Insana. Insana has mostly left behind their old ikat and indigo work in favor of synthetic dyes and the warp wrap technique called buna. The Insana textiles traditionally were blue in color and had beautiful motifs such as manu (chicken). The Threads of Life team has looked for a long time to find any weaver still wanting to make the more traditional ikat textiles using natural dyes.
