Yoga represents the third generation of a family with a long tradition in hand loomed textiles using traditional weaving techniques. He inherited the workshop from his late father Rachmad, who was well known for his textile craft. His workshop is one of the few workshops that have survived the invasion of the power loom and is specialized in weaving thick fabrics for furniture and home décor by hand.

The majority of the artisans are elderly people that need additional income to support themselves but have limited opportunities for employment. They work in the workshop or from their own homes. The handloom workshop in Central Java participates in the originalhome sustainable entrepreneur development programme.
