Nyiur Baye Gawah is a village located in Sub district of Narmada West Lombok Regency. Community in this village preserves wickerwork-making tradition by using Ketak material which is growing wild and trailing over tree trunks in the forest. It looks like tiny rattan but is very pliable and easy to plait and weave into various household articles. Ketak stems have commercial value for being strong and durable, water resistant, well- formed and natural in appearance. Among their products are laundry baskets, dish and glass coasters, tissue holder, trays and many more.
