The beauty of Sabah and Sarawak are reflected in the rich and diverse culture and tradition of their people. Until today, the people here retain their ancient cultural heritage that is their pride.
Sarawak, the largest state in Malaysia, is home to 27 ethnic races and over 45 different dialects spoken, with each group having their own unique stories, beliefs, traditions and cultures.
Meanwhile, in Sabah alone, more than 30 distinct and individually recognized ethnic races live together harmoniously with over 80 local dialects spoken.
With the influence of these two culturally-diverse states, we look into some of the elements of their bespoke artisanal traditional arts and handicrafts that may just inspire your next interior design project. These traditional elements express the creativity of the local community and can be incorporated into your living space.
