“If the Forbidden City had an attic it would be a lot like Folkart Gallery....

“If the Forbidden City had an attic it would be a lot like Folkart Gallery. Remarkable Asian Art from the farthest corners of Asia. Burmese art, textiles, tribal wearable art, altars and shrines, new and collectable jewelry. Cards, journals, essential oils , from the heart of the people that produced them. They reveal the better angels of our nature. It is a welcome haven from the storm of ghastly goods”.

My husband and I stopped at Folkart Gallery because a friend had recommended it to us. Once inside our senses were bombarded with every possible object imaginable from countries near and far. There were alters, pottery, fabric, tapestry, jewelry and carvings just to name some of the exquisite and rare pieces to be found, all reasonably priced. Everything was authentic... More

Eclectic and artistic. The Folk Art Gallery is sweet gem of a shop owned by well-travelled and interesting people, originally from Montana. Where else can you find original Frida Kalho jewelry AND Bhutanese nats in one place? You will never find such a unique collection of art, textiles and jewelry anywhere else.

There is no other shop like this in the area. I visited it many times on my 3 week vacation and found a new treasure every time I entered. The jewelry was beautiful and so reasonably priced. In addition to amazing jewelry, there are pieces of art ( carvings, tapestries, pillows, alters, etc) from all over the world. My 5... More

It was our last day in Bali after a 4-week cruise from San Francisco, and I was itching to shop for a special souvenir to commemorate our trip. We took a cab from the W Hotel and the driver dropped us off at a large modern mall. Whatever I was looking for could not be found in a mall, so... More

...except we couldn't find it based on the address listed. There doesn't seems to be an address on their website at all. I used the one listed here and on Facebook. Two cab drivers, three shop keepers and a policeman were unable to help locate the store based on the listed address. Couldn't call because our phones don't work here... More

This little shop is a true standout amongst the beachware and tourist tat shops that increasingly populate Seminyak. We wandered in almost by accident and were immediately entranced by the gorgeous art and jewelry, sourced from India, Burma, Indonesia, and even Japan. Linda, the owner, is great fun to talk to and very knowledgeable and passionate about SE Asian art... More
