Tanglad traditional weaving centre

4 1

The southeastern hub of Tanglad is a bit over an hour by motorbike from Toyo Pakeh, and half the pleasure of coming here is the ride.

The cotton fabrics they weave here, called 'kain cepuk', take about a year to make, use three main colours and are primarily for formal use for funerals and trance ceremonies. Should you find one you like they're for sale too, but don't expect any pressure.

There's not really any indication that this is a weaving village when you arrive at the main (only) intersection in town. So if you don't have a guide, there is a petrol stall near the intersection — go ask there and they'll point you in the right direction. This is a spot where a guide is worthwhile though.
