Craft Cultural Complex
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.
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.
The ethnic tribes of Sabah and Sarawak are represented by the
intricately woven baskets, beadwork and bamboo carvings with designs
that are hundreds of years old. Pua weaving of the Iban tribe
and Mogah textiles of the Bajaus are also displayed here in their
a cultural heritage spanning generations, the crafts have been
painstakingly preserved. You can see and appreciate them in our
Langkawi craft museums. Purchase those which you would like to
bring home as a memento of your stay in Langkawi at Langkawi Craft
