RANGRANG WEAVING ON NUSA PENIDA

Instead of a single weft that passes through all the warps, some weavers use several weft yarns, passing them through only one section of the warps before turning them back again. This technique leaves small gaps in the fabric where the different wefts turn away from each other. The weavers of Nusa Penida make multiple-weft cloths that emphasize these even gaps, a technique called slit-tapestry in English and rangrang in Balinese.
