Abstract

Tembe Nggoli is a traditional woven fabric of the Dompu and Bima people. It has been the traditional clothing of Dompu people since the mid-17th century. It is a weaving craft in the form of sarong which it differs from Songket. This study focuses on philosophical beliefs behind Tembe Nggoli in Dompu people’s life. This is a qualitative study using the semiotic approach by Charles Sanders Peirce. Each of Tembe Nggoli motifs, such as Nggusu Waru, Gari, and Nggusu Upa, has particular symbolic meanings. The motif of Nggusu Waru depicts 8 qualities that someone has to possess, including obedience to God and His messengers, wisdom, honesty, righteousness, courage, wealth, dignity, and good family background. The motif of Gari or Garis (stright lines) represents the symbol of honesty and firmness that someone should show in making decisions. The motif of Nggusu Upa symbolizes honesty, generosity, nobility, and the quality of being hard-working. These motifs express a deep hope or dream that Dompu’s people are supposed to achieve. They stress much on traditional values and norms in accordance with Islamic principles. As progress is being implemented in the lives of Dompu’s people, it is a traditional dress of the Dompu’s people. Traditional clothes for men named Katente, Saremba (Nggodo), and Sambolo while women include Rimpu and Sanggentu.
