Basically it's a tourist trap. You will have 2 ladies doing the traditional handloom work. They will offer you to train on their weaving machine and you have tip them minimum 10,000 Rupiah. However the showroom is damn expensive. They literally loot you. What they offer you there you will get at fraction of price in other Lombok shops. Don't come under pressure out of gratitude and buy something unless you have too much money to dispose off. It's a co-operative society where many artisans sell off their products and it's such a shame that they don't want to sell at competitive prices.

It was very interesting and informative to visit this workshop / museum. I have an interest in the arts and textile design and this establishment fall’s well within the sphere of interest. It has an excellent display and one can see great diversity in quality between hand and machine made. I enjoyed the weaving and also looking round the shop. It was disappointing to be followed by a sales person who was too enthusiastic for anyone’s liking. I wanted to buy some of the weaving but it was all grossly overpriced. I bargained him down and got it at a much more acceptable price. I bought a yellow songkok as I was leaving and was charged equivalent of US$10 - imagine how brassed off I was to see the same songkok in another nearby less touristy shop for US$ 1. Not similar but exactly the same. A lesson learnt and not big bucks anyway. Careful if you buy.

Unless we just got a terrible tour company, the “village” tour isn’t a village at all but a highly priced gift shop with people demonstrating how to weave. Would have been nice if we were allowed to observe at our own pace and relax, but instead we were rushed through very simple explanations of everything, pushed into some traditional clothes for photos, then very pressured to buy something that was way overpriced. When I wanted to walk around and look at things for myself in the shop or outside my “guide” kept trying to call my attention to what she wanted me to buy, when I told her I did not want to purchase those things she got a little hysterical and pleaded me to buy something over and over. I told her I would donate instead and she demanded to know how much I would donate. I quickly shoved some money in their donation box and got out of there as quickly as possible. Would have been a nice experience if I was just left to enjoy it. And probably would have actually purchased something if I was left to explore the shop on my own.

Interesting to see traditional weaving techniques still in use. A lovely tour with great guides. The fabric is labour intensive, and a purchase at the cooperative is not cheap. However, if you look at labour hours, it is a steal.

This stop was part of our tour of the southern area around Kuta and its beaches. Our guide took us through the village and showed us several women (including 1 at 82) weaving in the traditional seated loom. The weaving was beautiful and the tour lead to the gift shop that you have to visit before leaving, like any tourist attraction anywhere. They dress you up in traditional fabrics then of course they want you to buy the whole outfit. We did buy some very expensive fabrics as we did not want to haggle. I cross my fingers it is genuine hand woven! The people of Lombok have been through a lot lately with earthquakes and now the huge drop off in tourists so we did not argue with the prices, as a result I am sure we paid way too much for our fabric but still a small price to pay for us and hopefully helps their economy.
