Traditional Batik Printing

Traditional Batik painting is made using a cloth that is traditionally made using a manua wax-resist dying technique. The very labour intensive method requires multiple colour dyeing processes to achieve the spectacular results depicting traditional scenes and daily life of the locals.

Traditional Pottery

Created without a normal ‘potters wheel’, Lombok traditional pottery is created by ‘pinching’ clay to the top of the pot being created, rather than by forming a single piece of clay on a spinning potters wheel. This unusual technique results in amazing colour variations to the fired pots. Well worth a visit! (They will ship any purchases anywhere in the world for you!)

Traditional Textiles

The variety of traditional textiles available on Lombok are as varied as the techniques used to create them! Using patterns passed down from mother to daughter over many generations, women weave intricate patterns using a traditional “back strap” loom. A visit to a sales cooperative allow a wide variety of styles and weaving techniques to be observed.
