More info

Tais are the traditional textiles of East Timor/Timor Leste.  Woven on narrow handlooms, larger pieces like this one are typically 3 panels sewn together.  This item uses traditional colours and a traditional crocodile motif.  The crocodile is the national symbol of East Timor and features in its origin myth. I don't the exact age, but the market vendor from whom I bought it in Dili (East Timor's capital), said it was "old."  The colours are somewhat faded due to its age.

Dimensions: 160cm x 115cm (64" x 46").

All applicable Canadian taxes are included in the price.  If we are shipping to you outside of Canada, please be aware that your jurisdiction may impose additional customs duties and/or taxes.
