Tenun or ikat is a customary technique of creating fabric by hand-weaving colorful threads, often featuring a unique pattern of distinct cultural heritage. The life of these hand-weavers spread over different countries in South East Asia, including Indonesia. Traditionally, tenun is woven as traditional outfits for men and women when attending a social ceremony. However, these days, people also consider this hand-woven textile as a craft product for accessories and soft furnishings.
