Praya is a village in central Lombok, known for its Saturday market. It is a district capital that is surrounded by several weaving villages, including Sukarara and five other weaving centers along the main road through Praya. Almost all of the weaving centers occupy traditional houses which feature thatched roofs and wooden platforms that are raised. They typically have a shop attached to the house where the local cloth and garments are sold to tourists and passer-bys. Sales pitches are usually not as aggressive or high-pressure as other places and the sellers are open to bargaining.
