Neil and Katie in Bali - Tenganan

One of our trips took us to the village of Tenganan, which is walled in and where locals are only allowed to marry within the village. It is famous for its ikat weaving, a laborious process where the design of the weave is dyed onto the threads before they are woven. I can't even imagine how they do it, but the effect is gorgeous. Needless to say I bought some pieces while I was there and you can see photos of them here. We then wandered around the village and soaked up the atmosphere. An earlier downpour meant that is was very atmospheric and misty.
