  • 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.
  • Any lover of high quality hand made textiles will swoon upon entering this -air-conditioned- gallery. A wide variety of artisan works are available for fair prices. Fair, because this shop is the outlet for an NGO that goes across Indonesia to find master weavers, dyers, carvers etc, and recruits them to continue working with traditional materials, techniques and dyes. Additionally, should you not be able to make it to Sulawesi, say, there are videos documenting the artisans and the way they work. Don't miss it!
  • Its great place
