My friend and I had an amazing time with Jacky and her team. Nothing was too much trouble and we learnt so much. Thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone that has an interest in textiles.

I joined this retreat of 18 women as a single Traveller. I had a marvelous time and thoroughly enjoyed learning so much about the textiles of Indonesia. I can’t recommend this tour enough. It was truly fantastic thank you Jacky.
