Bali Homes Reviews
Jun 10, 2007
Bali Indonesia meeting some friendly sisters who had a store at Dynesty Hotel getting invited back to there home her husband was an architect & there home was in the process of being built It had three bedrooms lounge it would take up to five years to complete ie have a roof erected thus at the moment having no roof floor coverings~
yet still felt very homely had beautiful carved doors
The kitchen was to be a shared one a huge natural concrete floor very bland basic & lots of rugged pots pans hanging neatly around the walls.
A shared kitchen with his parents who also had a house on the same land The kitchen was free standing and the size of a lounge room
quite a contrast to the ladys brother who on another block of land with several homes
he lived with his wife in a room smaller than the average lounge room i didnt go inside yet his wife came out & sat on the concrete & started her weaving she sits there 12 hrs 24/7
The clothing she makes is fabulous the Loom consists of a large piece of flat wood & her cotton silk she threads into a medium oval shaped threader size of a tennis ball and manually passes the thread up & under from left to right across the board changing her colour cotton frequently
And putting in a 2inch by 2ft wooden pole at the top of the board pulling it down the wooden board to tighten each & every strand of cotton silk as soon as its threaded
Somehow she manages to produce the finest prettiest pieces of Balinese cloth with a consistant beautiful pattern ie maybe a butterfly flowers No patterns to create this i had to wonder how she does it i mean up & over 1 blue 2 pink 3 yellow 5 white 6 green 3 orange how does she do this
It takes 24 hours to three days to produce a large bath towel size of cloth depending on how much detail is involved amazing
Has to be seen this lady sits on the concrete & weaves all day with the wooden board approx 3ft by 2ft laying across her lap.
All for the wage of $2.00 per day if that!!
