Ruth Babang Liau

Location : Lambanapu Village

Ruth is one of several people in her village who can directly ‘ikat’ (tie) the motives on the threads without having to draw them in advance. She can do nearly the entire ikat weaving process by herself. In addition to taking care of her family and rice field, she continues to weave ikat day and night as her hobby. Sometimes she gets inspired by things that she has seen on local TV series, and creates new patterns and symbols from it.
