Beti Naek () Man's cloth wrap

This is a two panelled man's cloth wrap hand stitched together. It features the linear bands of the Atoin meto lozenge motfif. The centre motif is infilled wtih an intricate motfi and surrounded by 'mak 'aif' hook motifs. The layout of the design is an innovation which is a departure from the overall use of the repeated design.
