Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I have seen this often. I did not buy anything because of the price, but I tipped her for her time and demonstration. She does beautiful work.

Also just before her place (coming from Tejakula), is a little Warung called Sutya, I believe. (Literally one gate down.). Really nice stop, nice family. They have a handicapped son who is the apple of Dad’d eye, obviously happy and well-loved. If I lived close I’d eat here all the time. Wonderful cap cay and nasi goring.

Anyway, go to indigo. It is a special treat to see the process and then the result. Her husband dyes the yarn each morning. It is truly a family operation.

Please visit Surya Indigo Hand Weavers when you are in the part of Bali to support the local woman and to take home a beautiful item to remember these ladies and this stunning part of the world.

Surya means "sun" in sanskrit and Indigo reflects " great devotion and wisdom". The woman spend their days weaving beautiful items and you can see them in action when you visit. Next door is a small store where they sell their handiwork for purchase.

Beautifull handmade, woven, cloth. Also homemade coloured!
Real art and special. No cheap stuff. The people speak just a little English but are very friendly.

Surya Indigo is a weaving workshop in Terjakula, North Bali. The women who work in this cooperative produce superb fabrics with varied purposes on traditional Balinese hand looms. I visited specifically to add to my collection and was impressed with the use of hand vegetable dyed spun yarns.
The fabrics produced are of a very high quality. I would recommend a visit by anyone with an interest in this type of product. The fabric hanging that I purchased is a work of art, in my opinion, however it is also only one example of the products available for purchase.

It was great to visit and learn so much about the handmade fibres, and fabrics, the ways they dye the different colours - everything was interesting.

Visited in May 2019. Upgrading was in progress.
There was a brief showcase of how the weaving was done in a traditional way.

Paid around 45USD for a scarf. Which I thought was a little steep. But to support the locals, I don't really mind.

It is amazing seeing how the cloth is produced by simple, ancient methods but resulting into amazing pieces of cloth! The people speak a little English and you are very welcome to have a look on the process or buy your Unique souvenir.

On a trip to Singarajah, our driver treated us with a visit to this little gem of a place. On arrival, the friendly owners took their time to show us around their little home-based manufacturing "plant".

It's fascinating how just about all the ingredients required to make their beautiful hand-made fabrics are sourced from their plot, right down to the buds of cotton. Loved seeing the yarn spinner and the fabric weavers skillfully working away and we were fascinated to learn about the different plants grown in the garden which are used to produce natural dyes and brightener for the fabrics. Especially loved the plant that produces the wonderful "henna" colour. Apparently, the Balinese used to use this to colour their hair.

We were shown the cotton plants and the huge drum containing the fermenting plant that produces the gorgeous indigo colour that their little company is named after. Well worth a visit.
