Textiles of Insana, West Timor: Women Weaving and Village Development
By William G. Coury
This study explores the position handwoven textiles occupy in the household economy and the process of development. Throughout the pages of this book, the women of Insana tell the story of how weaving transforms the economic present and future of their families and community. It is an important addition to the body of knowledge surrounding development efforts and handicrafts. The book provides a valuable comparative tool for other researchers whose work focuses on women and development in Southeast Asia. The book contains 47 black and white photographs and 95 color photographs representing the Atoni of Insana and their textiles.
