A fair-trade business, Threads of Life works to alleviate poverty in the rural areas of Indonesia. The shop commissions handicrafts from the local people--items are made with native materials and natural dyes. Proceeds go to the region's weavers, who have a chance to establish independent coops, manage their resources, and make a living in a sustainable way. Plan a trip to Ubud easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • Threads of life was in my bucket list and I was waiting to visit them once I arrived. Somehow I got the time in my schedule to go to Bali and visited them, Really good work and neat space. The location where theyre situated is also good and everone is friendly. Thank You
  • Beautiful, handmade, expensive Balinese fabrics. At least you will know you bought something genuine.
  • Threads of Life is located in a by-lane away from the hub-bub of the Ubud city centre. You will truly need Google maps to find this place. It's a very tiny store with tasteful displays of indigenous textiles from not just Indonesia but all across the world. Don't be surprised if you find some bandhni shawls from Maharashtra here. Not recommended if you are just looking for souvenirs, the variety isn't out of the world. Your time is better spent reading the stories about each of these textiles.
  • 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.
