we fell in love with Kerawang embroidery on our first trip to Bali. exploring the markets in Ubud, we discovered an array of pieces featuring this unique embroidery technique. this regional textile began in the 1700's. the term originally comes from the word "terawang", which translates to "can see through".
each piece featuring Kerawang embroidery is unique, one of a kind and can take a month for creation. gifted Balinese artisans handpicked for their skill level create the pattern, designed to be embroidered, is first made in a block graph on paper. after that, the fabric is cut to be used for the base material. once the fabric is prepared, layers of thread are carefully removed from the fabric with precision. once there is enough available space on the cloth, it is ready to be embroidered and the spaces filled with motifs.
