Mount Agung Relief : Field Diary : Empowered Women in the Shadow of Mount Agung
Mount Agung Relief : Field Diary : Empowered Women in the Shadow of Mount Agung

Ibu Nengah Suriani is an evacuee from Banjar Geriana Kangin, North Duda Village, Selat District, Karangasem. She and several other women in the evacuation camp weave ata (Old World climbing fern) into bags with various motifs. Among them there are batik motifs, semelekete, butterfly, cross signs and many more.

Ibu Nengah hopes to sell her bags at a higher price to get more profit rather than going through the middlemen as is commonly done. On the other hand, the price of raw materials used is also quite high. Money generated from the sales of the bags will be used again to buy raw materials and to buy healthy food stuffs to be consumed at the evacuation camp as there is a lack of healthy food such as vegetables and meat available.

Ibu Nengah Suriani and the other women at the Tabola evacuation camp in Sidemen are an example of how evacuees can independently build their economy during their time at the camp.
Come on! Let's support them by buying or helping to market their beautiful handwoven bags.

In the past 40 years, we've lost many of our heirloom varieties, along with the many smaller family farms that supported heirlooms. The multitude of heirlooms that had adapted to survive well for hundreds of years were lost or replaced by fewer hybrid tomatoes, bred for their commercially attractive characteristics. (
