  • 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...  more »
  • 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!  more »
  • Wildberry 18 for sushi. Since I'm allergic to shellfish they took special care to seperate the food and I had really tasty sushi.  more »

  • Beautiful presentation of traditional fabrics of various places in Indonesia. Relatively expensive but totally makes sense. For a napkin dip dyed in natural color IDR 95k
  • Don’t make the mistake we did and think you’ll find similar quality at lower prices elsewhere. We explore most of Bali and couldn’t find anything as good (and clearly as ethical) as this.
  • This place does a fantastic job of explaining native craft traditions especially about weaving and dyeing on the Indonesian archipelago. Many beautiful pieces are available for purchase. They also offer tours and hands-on crafting experiences during the year. Well worth a visit if you're in Ubud.
  • By reading about this place online I was expecting more, like a real museum. Actually it’s a small shop and there are some material and photos to see. The pieces which you can buy there are not so cheap, but really nice hand made and unique products.
  • Lovely shop. Nicely displayed items with good explanation of all the processes involved for making the different threads /cloth.
