Tenun fabric is handmade fabric made by crisscrossing lusi threads (the threads ried on a woven fabric) with pakan (woof) The weave is made to follow a certain pattern that makes a piece of fabric. The Balinese hand woven tenun is known as “Kain Endek”. Kain Endek is created using “ikat pakan” (crisscrossing) technique. Ikat pakan is a set of woof whose patterns are created by tying parts of the wood before it is dyed. Thus results in some part of the woof that is not dyed. To create more than two colors, the woof can be colored additionallu after dying.
