Literature on Savu

Geneviève Duggan has made getting information about Savu textiles like one-stop shopping. There can be little left to learn about Ikats of Savu that she has not covered in her eponymous book, and in Woven Stories, informed by numerous visits to the island and countless hours of patient interviewing, gently digging for information about techniques, patterns and their meaning - much of it of a secret or semi-secret nature and not provided spontaneously. See Literature section for publication details and other sources, and the Links section for her own website. Three direct links below provide access to texts based on her small publication Palm Blossoms of Savu:
