This village is very popular for its traditional weaving works or "Tenun Tradisional Lombok". Most of the house in this village do weaving producing songket or variety of Tenun Lombok such as Scarf, Table Cover etc.. There is a big shop running by a Cooperative called Patuh. It exhibits the process weaving, and the guide will explain. Very interesting.

My husband and I learned hiw people weave in Sukarara Village. You can buy the Songket, made by local people. Moreover, you can see directly the process, wear the traditional clothes and take photos near the traditional house which is located next to the shop.

It was a good place to visit to understand about the local people and their way of life. It is not a built up place for tourists but the actual location of the village, and the people living there still. Very worth the visit.

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

Our tour would not be complete without learning about the local culture. Sukarara Village is where you get to learn about the weaving tradition of the Sasak tribe and understand the significance of cloth weaving in their daily lives. The host was friendly and communicated well with us. You can participate in the weaving demonstration and wear their traditional attires... 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
