“The Power of Gringsing” Inspired by a harmonised tangle of myth and aesthetic until visualized into a bundle of cloth called “gringsing”. The gringsing is known as double ikat, because, unlike other textiles, both warp and weft threads are dyed in complex patterns before weaving – the final design is achieved by combining these threads’ patterns into carefully preconceived ornamental form. This is an extremely complex and time consuming process. The making of gringsing can take two to five years and the cloth, if looked after, can last for hundreds of years. There are about 20 varieties of gringsing in Tenganan, with motifs such as the lubeng, cemplong, wayang and sanan empeg. These clothes are sacred and form an essential part of a divine cosmological order and spiritual practices, because it was God Indra who gave Tenganan’s women the treasured skills of making double ikat. And gringsing can be explained as meaning ‘free of suffering’ – pain or disease. So, the protective qualities make gringsing such a vital accessory in rituals and in connecting with the generosity of Gods and spirits.  My creation is use the pattern with fish-scale motif covers the entire surface. Such pattern application is called ‘isi’ literally meaning ‘content.’ It is highly valued cloth for ritual use and is considered one of the most important and magical textiles anywhere in Balinese culture. From the uniqueness of the cloth, I decided to make it as an option to create it as an evening gown with a simple and elegant lace and gold brocade combination which is an elegant touch taken from the beauty of how the king and queeen of the balinese kingdom dresses, filled with detailed expensive accessories that can enhance the evening gown an is able to make a gown that is full of stories and uniqueness.
