Cerik langah literally means a cloth with spacing or openings. This cloth was woven on a backstrap loom and the pattern has been achieved with a slit tapestry technique.
Traditionally this type of open weave textile was worn as a breast wrap and used for ritual dance throughout Bali. The spaces are said to be the way that the dancer is able to shift between the dimensions. This textile is beautiful to wear as the feel is so light, perfect with jeans or with a dress.
Information about the makers will be supplied with each cloth.
