The ikat is duplo, two fabrics sewn together, it is spun in natural cotton, dyed with natural dyes and with the warp ikat technique. With golden brown color seen in the horses and in the inner bands of non-figurative motifs, a great vivid beauty woven with a wide range of bright colors that intertwine in an overall image especially with the different shades of the violet-tinted background brown-wine. Of note is the border of the motifs in red and the way the blurred contours of the images, typical of ancient Sumba ikat, give the image dynamic movement. The central branching motif found in older fabrics, the bands of geometric design flanking it are derived from commercial patola fabrics.

The colors are fresh and vivid, especially the light watermelon red, it is made of exceptionally fine and tightly woven hand-spun cotton, creating a fine but dense fabric with a heavy drape, a stiff, stretchy feel and an extremely sandy texture light.
