Welcome to Temkessi

Back along the road from the main highway, 19km from Kefa, Maubesi is home to the Kefa regency’s best textile market. Market day is Thursday, when along with produce, animals and pottery, ikat is displayed beneath tamarind trees. Natural dye is the most prized and pieces can fetch between 1,000,000Rp and 5,000,000Rp, depending on the technique. Some take over six months to make. If you're not passing by on a Thursday, Maubesi Art Shop has a terrific selection of local ikat and handicrafts.
