"Tais" is a book by Jules Massenet.

  • also known as "Tais: opera v trekh deĭstvii͡akh: libretto Lui Galle po odnoimennomu romanu Anatoli͡a Fransa"


Tais cloth is a form of traditional weaving created by the women of East Timor. An essential part of the nation's cultural heritage, tais weavings are used for ceremonial adornment, home decor, and personal apparel. The Catholic Church of East Timor has also adopted the use of tais during its ceremonies. Because of the Indonesian occupation of East Timor, detailed study of the history and importance of the tais began only after 2000.
