Continued Change in Geringsing Weaving in Tenganan, Bali
For villagers their geringsing is more than just a piece of cloth—they are sacred and they keep the village pure when worn during ceremonies such as the month long Sabah Usamba. The author’s field work started in 1985 and culminated with an Indonesia research permit from 1997- 1999. This paper will give a review of changes from 1985 to 1999 and compare to 2014 observations regarding ceremonial dress, the state of weaving, the village, and tourism in Tenganan. This ethnographic research used the technique of participant observer.
