Our taxi driver took us to this place and it was fun watching the women weave and having a go at it myself. They then dressed us in traditional clothing and took some photos which turned out great. We bought a blanket which we were assured was handwoven. However, a few days later we bought the same style blanket on... More

This village is very popular for its traditional weaving works or "Tenun Tradisional Lombok". Most of the house in this village do weaving producing songket or variety of Tenun Lombok such as Scarf, Table Cover etc.. There is a big shop running by a Cooperative called Patuh. It exhibits the process weaving, and the guide will explain. Very interesting.

My husband and I learned hiw people weave in Sukarara Village. You can buy the Songket, made by local people. Moreover, you can see directly the process, wear the traditional clothes and take photos near the traditional house which is located next to the shop.

It was a good place to visit to understand about the local people and their way of life. It is not a built up place for tourists but the actual location of the village, and the people living there still. Very worth the visit.
