Description

Weaving is one of the most learned craft in Indonesia especially in Bali. This is basically the method of creating rugs, clothes, and other pieces using threads from indigenous materials like silk, plant fibers such as pineapple, palm, lontar and many others by using the traditional weaving machine which is the loom.

The practice of weaving can be dated back more than centuries ago. In fact in Indonesia, lontar weaving is the most popular. Lontar basically comes from palm genus which is a tall palm tree and natively growing in tropical regions of Africa, Asia and New Guinea. Lontar fibers are used in weaving to produce creative pieces.

Students of the workshop are taught different styles of Indonesian weaving: Ikat and Tapis. Tapis is a traditional weaving style originated from Lumpung, Indonesia and the word also refers to the resulting cloth. The style of the woven material are consist of striped naturally-colored cloth intricately embroidered with warped and couched gold-thread.

Whereas Ikat is the dyeing and as well weaving technique in Indonesia. This is used to pattern textiles with a wax dye. The patterns are clearly visible in the fabric. Weaving by ikat style can be done slowly that the weaver carefully weaves by adjustment in order to maintain the clarity of the patterns.

The lontar weaving in Indonesia has emerged to be a successful industry. With that, weaving cloths is probably the most in demand. Anyone can see how wonderful the weaved clothes are made by creative artisan weavers of Indonesia.
