Here we go again. I bought this shocking one. I was told by the Dealer that its a Sarong from Timor. Any further detail by any one will be greatly appreciated. Obviously most of the colors are synthetic but I love this crazy color combination. Its almost look like a modern art painting.

hello Effi,
A late response to your query. Yes Definitely Timor West probably from around the SoE region in the central highlands.
This is a party piece. Made and worn for parties.
A very interesting thing about this textile is that it looks like there are multiple weavers.
Occasionally I come across a piece in which I can read many or several or a couple of weavers. Sometimes it is the differing colour combinations that give it away , however more often than not it is the changes in tension in the weaving.
It is possible to see a skilled weaver teaching a novice. These are particularly notable in this buna or wrap embroider thread technique of your tais/sarong.
