Luba Village Woman Weaving an Ikat

A tribal woman is making ikat in the traditional Ngada village of Luba on the island of Flores, Indonesia. She sits underneath a house to escape the sun weaving ikat using a traditional loom. This traditional village is located in the town of Bajawa along the trans-Flores highway. We hired a guide to show us around the traditionall villages, Luba was our first stop.
