After a generation of decline, Bali's most ritually important textiles are being revived through the dedicated work of Threads of Life and the Yayasan Pecinta Budaya Bali.

For twenty years, kain cepuk, which is used in offerings and sacred performances could only command low prices meaning its production was limited to the poorest weavers.

The current revival is allowing kain cepuk made by the Karya Tenun Ikat Alami Cooperative on Nusa Penida to produce hand-made, natural-dye cloths for a wider audience. At the same time, natural dyed songket textiles produced in Sidemen in Karangasem are enjoying a renewed popularity among the Balinese.

Sacred bebali textiles, used in transition ceremonies and temple rituals are also being woven once more in Sidemen, Pejeng near Ubud, and Seraya in East Bali.

An Exhibition - Reviving the Sacred Bebali

To celebrate the revival of this tradition textile form the Indonesian Textile Arts Center on Jalan Kajeng 24 in Ubud will hold and exhibition Reviving the Sacred Bebali from December 26, 2006 through January 2, 2007.

For more information call the center at ++62-(0)361-972187.
