Lombok / Things to do

Visit Sukarara Village

Many visitors to Lombok may not realize that this island has a thriving textile industry.

Many textiles made in Lombok are woven by hand and these include tenun ikat which is a kind of woven cloth made by men and tenun songket which is made by women and is usually inlaid with gold and silver thread.

One of the best places to check out Lombok’s weaving industry is at Sukarara Village which is located in the south of the island and you can join a traditional weaving workshop here and learn exactly how traditional pieces are made.

Needless to say you can also pick up a few pieces which make great souvenirs.
