While Bali’s frequent ceremonies are awash with bright textiles and beautiful dress, the weaving of Bali’s natural-dyed traditional textiles, including red ikat cepuk, black-and-white checked poleng, and silk songket, has been in decline for many decades. Threads of Life works with weavers in Sidemen, Seraya and on Nusa Penida to help revitalize these traditions.
