Make your cell phone stand out from the crowd with this hand-woven cover. This cover was created on a wooden loom, and features a modified Amis tribal motif in a perfectly harmonious combination of bright pink, black, red and yellow. It comes with a flap and Velcro closure, as well as a hand crocheted strap in black for wearing around the neck to create an eye-catching accessory that combines traditional indigenous art with modern-day use.
Miku is a member of the Amis tribe, living in Taitung County’s Dulan Village in eastern Taiwan. Dulan is the location of the tribe’s sacred mountain, and this inspired her to take up the tradition of loom weaving five years ago, creating traditional items such as ceremonial sashes, shawls and bags, as well as more contemporary works such as handbags and cell phone covers. In addition to studying weaving methods, she also works to learn tribal motifs to incorporate them into her work and creates her own designs as well.
