Two women fold large nylon fishing nets

At the end of the day, two mature women on Kuta Beach untangle and fold large nylon fishing nets. They likely are working as a team with their fishermen husbands or other relatives.The woman at the left wears a blue dress and a green cloth wrapped around the top of her head. The woman on the right wears a machine made but traditional design purple Balinese cloth wrapped around her waist as a long skirt. She wears a second brown Indonesian cloth wrapped around her shoulders over a long-sleeved oink knit shirt. Both women are concentrating on their tasks as small waves roll to shore behind them.
