105-003 Timor (?) scarf

Abstract design on hand spun indigo cotton.  I think the sides are commercial cotton, as they are finer, and faded.  I bought this in Bali in 1985, and I believe it's from Timor (that's what the shop told me), but I have not found any close parallels in internet searches.  One side has some commercial cotton cross stripes.  Maybe these were added later, but I don't know for sure.  Weighs 215 grams.
