Sumba island is home to the Indonesia’s vastest savanna landscape. It was dry season when we visited Sumba at 10-15 July 2018, so we saw beautiful golden grass covered the island. Feel like a dream to see it.

The Sumba’s handwoven is one of the best in the world. It uses NATURAL DYES with a unique megalithic motives. It’s an ECOLOGICAL & hygienic activities except takes longer time to make it (6-12 months for 1 piece).
People from around the world come to Sumba just to hunt this handwoven. Why don’t us? 😊

Fortunately we were invited to participate in a unique fashion show. It was in the middle of TRADITIONAL MARKET to honor people of Melolo Sumba as the producers of the handwoven. We collaborated with locals to be models using the Melolo handwoven.
What do you think of us covering by Sumba’s handwoven as couple? 😊
Not only savanna, we also found beautiful beaches & waterfalls in Sumba. Last July we had a trip to Mariso Beach, Watu Parunu Beach & Palopo Waterfall.
Don’t forget to choose living with these nice people in natural traditional village. Feel their culture & hospitality.

Lucky us visited Sumba in July because we can see the famous “1001 Sandalwood Festival & Parade”. It was featured 1001 Sumba horses with their riders wearing various colorful traditional costumes originating from all across Sumba Island.
