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

Visiting this community-run shop was a joy. You will be met by a guide who will take you on a tour of the village so you can see various women at work in their home looms. There are also a few women weaving right at the shop so you can get a closer look and perhaps give it a try.... More

Visited Sukarara, on arrival we were met with a guide, which shows you thru the village, and the women which spend 8 hours a day in the front of their homes weaving cloth. They are very clever and was interesting to see. The tour of the village takes around 20 minutes visiting several women making various cloths. The guide then... More
