  • Nice shop not far from Starbucks. I meant to return to make a purchase but somehow did not make it. Interesting display of a variety of textiles with info on their artisans.  more »
  • Fabrics and beautiful baskets. Some cheaper other expensive. But it is worth visiting because they encourage local artisans.

  • 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.
