The indigenous communities of Sarawak, especially those living in the remote villages such as those in the Ulu Baram and Ulu Limbang districts, are often economically marginalised. On top of that, they also face the challenges of diminishing forest resources. At the same time, these natives are craftswomen and craftsmen known for their exceptional craftsmanship in producing all sorts of handicraft.

Style by Sarawak

With a passion for everything fashion, these Sarawakian fashion designers have been making major waves in the local fashion scene these recent years. From their trendy ready-to-wear pieces and modern design incorporating traditional pua motifs to bold minimalist apparels, these Sarawakian fashion designers show no sign of stopping in #StirringUpBorneo and making proud their homeland in the process.

Sarawak Culture defined through traditional clothing

Sarawak has a large collection of traditional clothing, each characteristically unique and remarkable in their representation of the 27 different ethnic groups that live here. Their designs are evocative of the traditions and steep folklores of their wearers, passed on from one generation to the next.
