Preserving Legacy: Bali's Historic Hand-Weaving Factory Paves the Way for Cultural Empowerment and Sustainability


Renaissance Bali Nusa Dua Resort beckons its guests to delve into the captivating world of hand-weaving with Pertenunan Cap Cili, one of the oldest and most revered hand-weaving factories in Bali, located in the heart of Gianyar. This unique opportunity presents itself as a cultural exploration right within the resort's lobby, offering an authentic experience of the island's artistic legacy while fostering women's empowerment and promoting environmental sustainability, values shared with Marriott International.

Established in 1948 by the visionary Balinese couple, Ni Made Suwening and Pande Wayan Sira, Pertenunan Setia Cap Cili stands as a testament to the positive impact a business can have on its local community. Employing over 200 skilled artisans from three to five neighboring villages, the factory has been a driving force behind the economic growth and social development in Gianyar. Their unwavering dedication and passion for empowering women have been recognized and appreciated by the Ministry of Women's Affairs, which awarded them in 1989 for their noteworthy contributions to women's labor productivity.

Beyond its commitment to the people, Pertenunan Cap Cili is equally devoted to preserving the environment. Employing responsible waste management practices, the factory ensures that the water and dye mixture waste is channeled into designated areas for filtration, eliminating any harmful chemicals or unnatural particles before being safely absorbed into the soil.
