What we say: 4.5 stars

Threads of Life is a small Indonesian textile arts centre located half way down Jalan Kajeng, a 10-minute walk north of the Ubud market.

The Centre commissions textile makers and basket weavers across Indonesia to support the continuation of local traditions and create an environment in which villages can earn an income from the creation of cultural artifacts.

The Centre features a small gallery, a demonstration on the weaving process and a shop allowing visitors to purchase works that can be traced back to individual villages within Indonesia. Most of the pieces take many months for an individual to complete, but they have provenance and this makes the cost of these items worthwhile.

At the Centre it is also possible to participate in classes that demonstrate Indonesian textile traditions and textile tours ranging from one day to two weeks.

Threads of Life really is something a little bit different compared to many of the other galleries in Ubud and is worthwhile going out of your way to visit.
