Established in 1986, Nogo is a purveyor of high quality hand-woven ikat fabrics and their designs have upholstered and decorated scores of hotels and villas in Bali, including the Four Seasons Resort Bali, Le Meridien, Grand Hyatt, and Nusa Dua Beach Hotel & Spa.
The manufacture of ikat is a fascinating, precise tie-dye process. Threads are bundled and tied and dyed according to the desired pattern, and then woven on a plain garb, giving a cloth which has the design indelibly embedded within it. Nogo's designer, Lily Coskuner, uses only the best materials and dyes, and this makes the fabric finer and more durable, with long-lasting color. Customers are welcome to choose from the extensive collection of garments and soft furnishings in the shop or submit their own designs for the production in Nogo's facility.
"Lily Coskuner, a young Balinese woman who studied design in Germany, uses these handwoven fabrics in the clothing that she makes and sells at Nogo, in Sanur. 'When I got back from Germany, the patterns of the ikat caught my eyes,' Ms. Coskuner said. 'No one had used the fabric for anything but traditional dress, and I thought I'd give it a try.' Ms. Coskuner shied away from the wildly mixed colors favored by the Balinese, and she has limited combinations to varying shades of one or two colors in a single pattern."
