  • A must visit for anyone with a love of textiles. What an incredible value to humankind that threads of life are preserving textile processes that were facing imminent extinction, as well as providing insight to the beauty and meaning of the remarkable pieces on display.
  • Beautiful gallery in the heart of Ubud with beautiful, authentic fabric art ny local artisans. We took their batik class - informative and fun day in the countryside near Ubud.
  • They are keeping the ancient weaving and dyeing practices from Indonesia alive and supporting remote villages. Such great work, such beautiful textiles.
  • It was the last day of my trip and I happened to come across this boutique. It's usp is it promotes traditional art form of weaving and dying cloth. Technique which is passed on from generation to generation. Although I did not buy anything which I regret but I greatly admired the collection. I did pick up the brochure. This is a must place to visit.
  • Authentic souvenirs. Museum quality pieces. Must visit when in Ubud.

Less expensive alternatives are also available, albeit with fewer amenities and a little less isolation. If you wish to stay in Ubud itself, look for charming and inexpensive rooms rented by local families (with many including breakfast in the cost), or consider the pricier single-occupancy apartments.
