The most exciting textile tour you are ever likely to find – the trip of a lifetime!

The remote islands of eastern Indonesia have one of the most diverse textile cultures on the planet. Join British textile experts David and Sue Richardson for a fantastic, adventurous voyage and discover more about these textiles, the techniques used to make them and the role that cloth plays within the local community. As some islanders emphasize: ‘without cloth we cannot marry’.

Learn how a warp becomes a weft in the same textile, how mud is used in dyeing, how two different dyes are obtained from the sea hare, and much, much more. In village after village we will see every aspect of textile production and natural dyeing and enjoy the opportunity to purchase fabulous textiles directly from the women who made them.
