Pahang Hand-Woven Fabrics

Pahang hand-woven fabrics are created by using a traditional loom called ‘kek Siam’. The designs are characterized by chequered patterns, arranged in such a way that the colour sequence can be changed intermittently from the warp (vertical thread) to the weft (horizontal thread). The price of each completed fabric would depend on the materials and thread used. Pahang hand-woven fabrics are used as sarongs, sampins, scarves and traditional attire. Today, the creation of these fabrics has been adjusted to fit the local and foreign designers’ taste where the fabrics are designed for formal dinners, royal and wedding ceremonies and other important events. It has become a handicraft that is of high quality and demand. With the present acquired appreciation, Pahang hand-woven fabrics long over-due fame has arrived.




One of the oldest traditional crafts in the country, Pahang woodcarvers take their inspiration from Islamic art and the rich local flora. Although some are decorative pieces, most have a more practical purpose. From houses to palaces, the craft is seen through the intricate designs on beams, supports, balustrades, doors, window shutters, as well as furniture. All bear testimony to the exquisite craftsmanship and enduring quality of the state’s woodcarvers.
