Threads Of Life

Ubud Gallery


he Threads of Life Gallery in Ubud is an educational and retail space representing our values of cultural continuity, sustainable livelihoods, and environmental stewardship. Textiles and artifacts throughout are curated to museum standards with interpretative texts and images. Our gallery staff will guide you through our retail exhibits, teaching you about the textile arts, their cultural roots, and the importance of the gallery’s work to rural livelihoods across Indonesia. They will answer all your questions about natural dyes, motifs, and techniques, and tell you about the women who made the textiles and baskets. Behind the scenes is a staff of thirty who work directly with the weavers in the field across the archipelago, and maintain the chain of custody that allows each piece to be labeled with unique information about its makers and the importance of the piece to their culture.
