The tour starts with pick up from your hotel and go on a scenic drive to the country side of Brunei passing the Malay villages and local residential areas.
The hi-light of this tour is a visit to a cottage industry factory producing the “Kain Songsarat” or Brunei traditional golden tread weaved cloth.
Like most proud traditions the art has been preserved through the centuries by the age-old system of father teaching son - only in this case, mother teaching daughter. The technology is much the same today as it was then. You will see no expensive sophisticated automatic weaving machinery; only a hand loom operated by highly skilled, artistic and patient women.
It is worn on royal and state occasions, worn by brides and grooms for marriage ceremonies and is also sometimes used as elaborate and decorative wall coverings.
Your tour ends with transfer back to your hotel.
