In July 2016, I got invited by the Ministry of Tourism of Indonesia together with 50+ other South East Asian bloggers and influencers to travel around Indonesia for 12 days.

A Trip to Sasak Sade Traditional Village


Sasak Sade Traditional Village is located in Lombok Indonesia, the village's primary source of living is weaving and farming, they make one of the best cloth in Indonesia (as far as I know), from the regular sarong to the highest and softest cloth you can purchase it here. Upon entering the village, we were welcomed by loud traditional music using gongs, drums, and other Indonesian musical instrument. 

Every family helps build their house using the traditional bamboo, clay and cow feces. The tribe is one of the inhabitants here in Lombok where farming and weaving is their main livelihood. 



We witnessed their traditional dance. These dance rituals are done before circumcision, a comedy act and a fighting act where two men fought.

I was able to watch how these women weave these threads (silk) and after 1 week or 1 month they were able to make a beautiful and colorful sarongs, table runners, and bed covers. 


Price range is from 100,000 IDR up to 500,000 IDR, so that's about 300.00 to 1,500 PHP. 


All villagers sell sarongs, cloth and other collectibles and their share everyone's profit to provide their families needs. 



The traditional house here in Sasak Sade Village with small pathways and houses are made of bamboo.


One of my favorite part of my 12-day Indonesia tours c/o The Tourism Ministry of Indonesia. I was able to buy few sarongs and cloth for my Kimono business - a heaven for a textile lover like me.
