Welcome to The Batak Weaver

Hi All,

I'm Jane and I'm an Australian married to a Batak. My clan name is Panjaitan and my husband's clan is Tambunan. We have been married for 18 years. I have a huge interest in all things arts and crafts. Recently I travelled to Balige to spend a couple of weeks near our village at Tambunan Lumban Gaol. I have been a weaver for a number of years. I first started weaving back in university in the 80s. My goal is to deepen my skills in the traditional ulos weaving that comes from the Toba region in North Sumatra. This blog is dedicated to documenting my weaving progress.

Please leave a comment and I'll reply as soon as I can.
