I sew so I was very interested in seeing what they made. The quality is incredible and if you bargain, prices are good when you consider the hours of labor. The shop is full of items but there were other places throughout the village we did not have time to see as part of a day tour. I tried weaving... More

It was ok for me to walk around their village and try to do the weaving. Its beautiful, but unfortunately its too expensive for us. We had a budget to go to Lombok. So we did buy one of the small one, for 30 bucks instead of 250 bucks

If you want to visit a truly traditional village, skip Sade and come here! While it is not pretty like touristy Sade, Sukarara is a a REAL village where people live, work, play and die. Since our guide knew that my spouse and I enjoy learning about the culture and lives of the people in the places we visit around... More

This village are known as a place to producing sarung or songket clothes that the people use for some event or daily use nowadays. My kids have fun to learn and wearing lombok traditional clothes. The price are quite expensive because you can get more cheaper in other place around lombok island.

This is NOT a village. I know when I see a village, this is NOT. It's basically a shop with 4 ladies weaving at the front of the shop. I think it's pretty much depends on your luck as to whom you would get as guide. MY guide definitely not the one you'd expect to get. He didn't explain much... More

We visit this place as part of our tour. This place was bit far away from anywhere but here, you can see how people in Lombok create their unique textiles. It worth to visit as side trip. There is a local guide that will guide you and explain things about Lombok culture and their waving technique. Here, you also can... More

Located not too far from Mataram city in Lombok. You'll appreciate and will understand why it's pricey once you know how to make tenun ikat. The people in this village are warm & friendly and you can even negotiate the price of each items. If you like traditional fabric this is the lace.
