Description

Lombok's terracotta pottery is gaining an international reputation for its quality workmanship. In the village of Banyumulek ("clear water"), you can see pottery makers painstakingly molding vases, jugs and plates in exactly the same way as they have been crafted for centuries. We will visit Sukarare, renowned for its traditional weaving. The techniques have been handed down from mother to daughter for generations. Each pieces of cloth is woven on a handloom in established patterns and colors. Some fabrics are woven in as many as four directions and interwoven with gold thread. They can be so complicated that they take one person three months to complete. After Sukarare, we will move on to Kuta beach, the magnificent south coast, where you can have lunch in a local restaurant close to the beach. We will continue on to Sade, a hamlet built in the traditional Sasak style. The houses are made entirely of adobe, roofed with alang-alang (a type of long grass). Our last stop is Narmada Summer Palace, built in 1727 by an old Balinese king. Too frail to journey to the summit of Mt. Rinjani to make his offerings, he had this garden laid out around a spring as a miniature replica of the volcano and the lake.
