The village of Tenganan is famous as an aboriginal village known as Bali Aga. An important part of Bali Aga culture is the complex Tie-dye technique used to make Bali’s traditional geringsing double ikat. Bali’s Tenganan village is the only village that today still produces geringsing. In geringsing, both the cotton warp and weft threads are carefully dyed and cross-dyed before weaving; the finished pattern only emerges as the cloth is woven. It is believed that geringsing has the power to prevent diseases and evil spirits.
