Sumbanese Ikat, $1,500

These featured double weave ikats were crafted by the women of Sumba. The first selected design depicts the fabled Sandalwood Arabian horses, found only on the island after first being introduced by Arab traders who brought them in harvesting the trees which were once found throughout the island. The second ikat's pattern features skull trees, a depiction that harkens back to the island's nearly abandoned culture of head-hunting. The chosen designs are rarely found on the island and were hand selected by S+O's founder on her trip to the island. Ten percent of the ikat sales proceeds to benefit the Sumba Foundation.  Additional designs can be sourced by inquiry at
