Ibu Ciwuk lives in the village of Kanoman in the Yogyakarta region where she lives with her children, very close to the villages where her friend Ibu Yamti and Ibu Amit live, with whom she has woven for several years. They weave together baskets or carpets made of natural materials recovered from pickles or "weeds" to be removed such as banana leaves, pandan or even water hyacinth from the river.
Ibu Yamti comes from the village of Brosot in the Yogyakarta region, surrounded by greenery, where she lives with her family and community. When she is not looking after her children at home she weaves baskets or rugs with materials such as banana leaf or pandan leaf. She has worked hand in hand for several years with her friends Ibu Ciwuk and Ibu Amit. She is grateful to be able to make a living from a traditional profession in her region.
