Our textiles in detail, all compiled on Pinterest

Each textile has a story. Where it's from, who made it, and what materials were used. If you are interested in the process and details of these textiles, this board is for you!

Threads of Life ranked #2 on TripAdvisor!
Thank you to everyone who reviewed us on TripAdvisor:
Threads of Life is a fair trade business that uses culture and conservation to alleviate poverty in rural Indonesia. The heirloom-quality textiles and baskets we commission are made with local materials and natural dyes. With the proceeds from the Threads of Life gallery, we help weavers to form independent cooperatives and to manage their resources sustainably. 

The Bebali


Threads of Life's nonprofit partner, the Bebali Foundation, works with the same communities as Threads of Life to support cooperative development and environmental sustainability. The Bebali Foundation trains weavers in the establishment and maintaining of credit unions, and the sustainable cultivation, harvesting and use of dye plants. Its groundbreaking dye plant and dye recipe identification and documentation is the backbone of ongoing work to safeguard endangered indigenous weaving traditions, and the livelihoods they represent, from extinction. 


To support the Bebali Foundation, please donate at via Give2Asia, PayPal, or bank transfer.
