craft02.jpg (22991 bytes) Perched on a strategic location near the sea at Teluk Yu, the Craft Cultural Complex was set up to maintain and promote the nation's rich cultural heritage. Beautifully and intricately handmade crafts can be found here, reflecting the skill and creativity that have been handed down from generation to generation.craft01.jpg (41673 bytes)

Silver and brassware in various forms and shapes are carefully carved with motifs inspired by nature. Unique baskets of rattan, mengkuang and pandan leaves are woven in colourful ethinic designs. There are also woodcarvings with fine and meticulous patterns.

 

Ceramics in the form of pots come from various states in Malaysia, each with their own individual designs. An ever popular favourite is the hand-drawn and printed batik with innumerable exclusive designs to choose from. Songket or silkinterwoven with golden and silver threads is the epitome of Malay design, used for all official and royal functions.
