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.

The whole place is somehow interesting. The visit was quite nice with an english speaker local guide but eventually really short (5 to 10 minutes). Children and people in the village were pretty warm. However, the end of the journey inside a shop to talk tourists into buying local stuffs were really too much (don't worry, they accept VISA card).... More

We were first shown how a "songket" cloth was woven and you could even try weaving one during the demonstration. Then a few of the group members had the chance to wear the clolourful traditional costumes of the Sasak people and had their photos taken in front of the traditional house. If you want to get high-quality woven cloth, this... More

You can try how to wave clothes and at the end of the small tour (10min if you don't try to do anything) you will be welcome in the shop. Nice sarung etc but expensive. You can find exactly the same and cheaper in the market in Kuta beach and you can also bargain.

For Sasaks, weaving is considered an essential talent that a woman should possess. It is almost the same technique of weaving all over South East Asia. The price is much cheaper in Sasak village but I am not sure of the quality.

The villages a bit a far from Tourist areas such as Kuta Beach or Senggigi Beach, but still easy to access with left and right on the way is rice field and best place to see if you visit Lombok island.

We went on a tour of the village with a young teenage guide. It was interesting to see the local women using an unusual loom, that they kind of sit into, to make cloth. They use such beautiful colours and use an old fashioned (but complex) way to design the patterns on the cloth – a real skill. Kids were... More

I'm always astonished with Indonesian wovens. Try weaving by yourself to appreciate every piece of it. Smart bargain & get good quality Lombok woven in reasonable price
