Fourteen women still work at home in Gianyar for the entrepreneur, likewise four men apply the tyings for pre-determined patterns at home. After the patterned weft yarn has been dyed, the tyings have to be removed before it can be woven. This removal work is contracted out as homework, usually to boys who work part-time while they are still attending school. There are five women weavers working at home in Sidemen for this manufactory—married women over 25 years of age who already have large families and cannot absent themselves from home for the whole day.

The minister responsible for the territory of Singharsa was the eldest son of the reigning monarch, I Dewa Anom Pamayun, who also moved his abode here from Gelgel in 1641 accompanied by his own priestly counselor, Pedanda Wayan 37 SONGKET Buruan. The main town of the growing kingdom was then given the name Siddhaman—a name which identified it as a place with a favorable climate, that was particularly esteemed by Brahmans as a place of meditation. Siddhaman was also apparently well-suited to the strenuous and exacting programming of songket patterns—demonstrated by the fact that the female descendants of Wayan Buruan, female Brahmans of the Carik and Ulah priestly compounds (the former Sukaton), still possess a special skill in this art.

The workers, male and female, all come from the lower social classes and are between 14 and 26 years of age.

Men work on the warping and reeling devices (Fig. 8) and all the dyers and tyers are also men. Of the 33 men and women on the payroll of the manufactory, three are from a neighboring village and three from Gianyar.
