Wunut comes from
the Manggarai
language word. In the Indonesian language is usually called
Ijuk.
People who used to
use a broom fiber must be familiar.

According to the
dictionary, Wictionary Ijuk is the base of the bust of enau. Ijuk encloses
almost the entire stem of the enau tree or sugar palm

In the Manggarai
tradition, Flores, Ijuk is an important material in daily life. Ijuk is often
used as a roof of a house, a rope and a palm fiber broom.

As a roofing
material, palm fibers are neatly arranged to make rain and sunlight difficult
to enter. Until now often used in traditional houses Manggarai.

The twisted axes in such a way form a strong rope. Local people usually use to tie the house poles, fences and so on.

Manggarai
tradition there is one proverb that has a proximity to this ijuk – “Cimang neho
rimang cama rimang rana, kimpur neho kiwung cama kiwung lopo.” Its meaning is to
be strong, stocky, tough and unyielding as the sticks of the palm fiber are
hard to break
