Peppered around the Flores Archipelago in Indonesia are a number of Ikat Textile Weaving Villages where Ikat Textile weaving is part of everyday village life, and most easily seen by crewed yacht charter. These are villages at the base of volcanoes on islands where every day life is as it has been for centuries. Without regular ferry systems, these villages are best visited by private yacht charter.
Visit Watublapi Village, an Ikat Textile Weaving Village on crewed yacht charter in the Flores Archipelago in Indonesia to see firsthand a fabulous demonstration of Ikat Textile weaving by the villagers of Watublapi, wearing their village Ikat designs captured here in this pictorial review. This is an extraordinary chance to see an age old weaving tradition, done by hand on hand made looms, in villages rarely visited except by crewed charter yachts.
