Songsarat” or Brunei traditional golden tread weaved cloth in one of the Malay villages. The earliest recorded mention of cloth-weaving in Brunei Darussalam can be traced to Sultan Bolkiah’s reign from 1485 to 1524. Magellan visited Brunei sometime during this period and his official chronicler, Antonia Pigafetta, reported seeing beautiful examples of Brunei handicrafts in particular the woven cloth. It was a common cottage industry even in those days so it is clear that woven cloth can be dated earlier than the 16th century.

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.
