Doors in Bali

One thing I got to love while in Bali is the doors, any door; they have the most exquisite doors I’ve ever seen, some are raw wood color, others are nice bright colors and some used gold, but the carving can go from simple and beautiful to intricate and extremely detailed.

This is one thing I fall in love with, tin cans, frames, mobiles, boxes, door signs, anything you can think of, this craft comes from north of the island.

Batiks from Java

Last but not least is this batik collage sold by the meter; batik comes from Java, it is a technique used in Indonesia where the fabric is stamped manually, a very detailed and laborious task. Each small square you see it’s a piece from a batik, it can be very pricy depending on the detail and design.
