TIMOR Goddess Dress

Price: $169.00

These Gorgeous 'one of a kind' goddess dresses are built around exquisite antique material sourced from East Timor and pays homage to the color, diversity and the spirit of these women.

Featured as the breast panel and along the back of the spine is woven antique 'Tais'. Weaving of 'Tais' is performed solely by women with techniques passed down generation to generation and patterns and motifs are reproduced from memory. It is a painstaking and back breaking labour process that takes many hours of dedicated work. Their designs are so very special and important as it is a tradition that continues to allow poverty stricken women of East Timor a rare form of self expression in the restrictive environment of the 25-year Indonesian Occupation.

2% of profits generated from this collection will be donated to the founders of textilesofeasttimor.vstore.ca and donated to the women of East Timor who weave these amazing textiles.
