SORHA NAULI, WITH THE WEAVERS OF PAPANDE VILLAGE

‘Sorha’ refers to the spinning wheel whilst ‘Nauli’ means beautiful in the Batak Toba language. Sorha Nauli currently works with ten artisans in Papande Village, Muara District in the North Sumatra province. Papande is situated on Sibandang Island in Lake Toba, accessible by boat from the capital of the Muara district. In ancient times, weavers on this island only wove ulos cloth for traditional ritual purposes. With the passage of time and the increasing demand for fashion needs, weavers are now adapting the use of these textiles. Cotton thread is used whilst natural dyeing is being revived once again.
