Ni Gede Diari is a legendary weaver from Cenagen on Nusa Penida. This is a ceremonial cloth of the highest grade. All natural dyes and weft ikat construction deliver the highest protection from Radna the evil witch. This textile is featured in the National textile gallery of Indonesia and many prominent collections. She only makes a few of these per year and we were lucky enough to get one on our recent visit to her. This color and style of textile are highly prized for their protective power and ability to restore the balance between good and evil in life. This cloth is closely associated with the witch goddess Rangda, and this would be worn by a dancer representing her, or by a priest during a ceremony. This cloth comes with a 100% lifetime guarantee against Rangda and is sure to restore the balance of good and evil in your life. 80cm×2m. Ni Gede Diari and her husband Ngurah live in the tranquil hillsides of Eastern Nusa Pendida with an insane view from their workshop across the Bali straight to Lombok. Ngurah handles the dying and preparation, while Ni Gede Diari happily dishes out life advice while spending the day weaving. She does not have a daughter of her own to teach, but she is very hopeful that one of her two boys will find a traditional spouse to carry on her traditions.
