Weaving

lombok scarf weaver

She’s weaving a scarf.  It will take her about four weeks to weave that scarf.  If you visit Lombok, visit the Sukarara village, wherein all of the women weave.  They learn to weave at 10 years old, and cannot marry until they can weave all manner of weavings by hand.

Don’t worry, the men have to build a house by hand before they can marry.  It sort of evens out.
