Beautiful Indonesian Traditional Fabrics: Balinese Wastra...

Frankly, I am a biiiig fan of all Indonesian traditional fabrics...

ALL OF THEM :D...

I was so lucky that I have a chance to travel around my beautiful county and complete my collections..

Recently, my work took me to Bali..4 times in 2 months :D...

Theeen...my itchy feet took me to Pasar Badung :D..

And voilaaaaaa.....lines of beautiful Endek Bali as well as hand-woven tenun Bali were warmly welcoming me...
Panic attack? yeees....in a positive way of course...

Let me start with Tenun Bali...




According to the lady who sells these beautiful fabrics, approximately, it takes around 5 weeks to produce one high quality Balinese tenun....

Look at the colors and the patterns....brilliant colors such as fuschia, bright purple, royal blue, mint green are just some of them...

Another beautiful element of these amazing fabrics is the patterns...from intricated flowers to unique 'tumpal', from  classique leaves to contemporary pencil-shaped forms

All these things certainly steal my attention immediately :D...

So I managed to get my self one black songket Bali with colorful  flowery patterns, like this :D...


  

Well, well, apparantly, my shopping list is not exhausted, as I set my eyes on Endek Bali...
hmmm, what is Endek Bali? If I may put it briefly, Endek Bali is another beautiful example of never-ending creativity of Balinese women in hand-weaving cotton threads and turning them into masterpieces of arts

Again, lines of brilliant colors and wonderful patterns struck me....successfully making me, without any single doubt :D, to buy them..

Usually, they are sold in meters, so you can freely decide how many meters you need ..the width of this fabrics vary, from 90 cm to 110 cm

Wanna see what I have bought for me, me, and me :D....here are the photos:D..

Balinese Wastra, I love you to the bones :D...
