Hinggi are cloth for men woven and worn in pairs, one wrapped around the hips and the other draped across a shoulder. The primary means of patterning these textiles is the process called ikat. Ikat is a Malay-Indonesian word that means tied or bound, which describes the method of tying and dyeing the lengthwise (warp) yarns before weaving. They are woven on a backstrap loom and sewn together. This example which is cotton and dyed with vegetable dyes in various shades of brown-red, is from the island of Sumba.
