  • We bought some unusual items on a trip to Flores Island when we were there in 2012...one was a ceremonial piece from Sumba that they had only seen one other time...They had some nice weavings there...

  • Beautiful indigo art and batik but very expensive! I understand that it is not mass production but I feel that the prices are outrageous.Friendly and lovely staff and worth a visit to enjoy!

  • Says open but it's closed
  • Where I would love to be if I had heaps of money. Fantastic collection
  • Stopped in here today to peruse the textiles. There are some beautiful weaves and some very talented weavers keeping tradition alive. I’d hoped to find some cushion covers for our sofa but nothing quite worked for our decor. Instead I left with a beautiful silk scarf that was very well priced and one of a kind. Don’t miss this spot in Ubud
  • Amazing people doing some very special things - creatively and socially.
  • Very high quality fair trade shop. Prices are much higher than what else you'll find in Bali, but you can tell the workers will be properly paid and there is a large sustainable effort. Keep it up!
