Wood Carving

As a land of great forests and timber diversity, Malaysia has long been a source of wood crafts. Even a complete traditional house was built in exquisitely hand-carved timber. As one of the oldest crafts in Malaysia. Most of the carvings are inspired by nature, floral, environment, culture and beliefs. From houses to palaces, the wood carving is seen through the intricate designs on beams, supports, balustrades, doors, window shutters, as well as furniture and decorative items.

Songket

Songket is rich textile, a typical Malaysian cultural work of art. It is created by weaving gold and silver threads into silk or cotton cloth to form a decorative motive. The interplay of light and gentle shadow on the fabric creates a gorgeious shimmering effect, making it undoubtedly, the 'queen' of hand woven fabrics. Because of its unique material and weaving method, this rich and luxurious fabric demonstrated the social status of the Malay elite and it was once exclusive to royalty, but today it is used as official costumes during formal occasions and traditional ceremonies.

Remarks

Wood carving in this series of products is hand carved therefore it is subject to human's variation and that makes every piece a unique piece. The carving pattern may varies but it will not reduce the quality and vary the appearance.
