Fair trade feels extra fabulous at this non-profit boutique just off Ubud’s main drag, which promotes women’s empowerment and sustainable development through traditional Balinese weavings. Threads are soaked in natural dyes then woven into motif-covered fabrics, which are turned into bold men’s shirts, striking silk shawls and unique sarongs. Venture below-ground to the well-lit gallery filled with more woven wonders, plus charming betel boxes from Sumba, featuring mythical birds hand woven of lontar leaf.
