Ikat in Desa Dulitukan on Ile Ape


This was my first view of Ile Ape,1450 Mt above sea-level. Ile stands for mountain and Ape for fire. It is an active vulcano which last erupted in 1920.


In March 2015 we visited Desa Dulitukan on the plain next to Ile Ape. The village has a Women Weaving Cooperation.
