Overview

Threads of Life is a fair trade business that uses culture and conservation to alleviate poverty in rural Indonesia. The heirloom-quality textiles and baskets we commission are made with local materials and natural dyes. With the proceeds from the Threads of Life gallery, we help weavers to form independent cooperatives and to manage their resources sustainably.

Range of textiles from around the region, as part of a community project, nicely presented - prices are towards higher end.

I buy here regularly as gifts for friends. The textiles are hand made batik and hand woven scarves and shawls. Traditional dyes are used...these are works of art as much as attire.

What an amazing collection of very fine local Indonesian craft products, mainly textiles but carvings and other goods too. Prices are not cheap, but the quality is outstanding. Staff could be a little more friendly and cheerful: they were a bit dour.

Interesting but not much to see - just a few textiles and staff. We thought we were going to see much more product and women weaving.

Hi Chanda - it is possible to visit some of the places that weavers work - as the above says - Sideman and Tenganan are two such places. It takes more time and effort to get to any of the other areas we work as they are... More
