Traditional weaving by local women
In Nusa Dua, traditional weaving was slowly disappearing. The Weaving Futures program preserves traditional weaving and at the same time provides an income for local women.
Threads of Life taught the women natural dyeing techniques and professionals from Nusa Penida and Klungkung trained them to weave. They have now created their own signature designs.
The colors come from local plants such as ketapang leaves (orange and yellow), sappan wood (red), santan wood (chocolate brown), mango leaves (lime green) and indigo leaves (indigo blue).
