In the island of Borneo, the Ulu Baram region of Sarawak is home to a rich diversity of indigenous tribes, namely the Kenyah, Kelabit, Kayan and Penan who live in the middle and upper reaches of the Sarawak rivers.
The history of each tribe is steeped in a rich tapestry of culture, beliefs and legends. It is this diversity in which Sarawak creativity thrives, giving rise to unique crafts that turn everyday objects to collector's items. Renowned for their artistic skills, they take great pride in the beauty they painstakingly carved, weaved, or sewn into these items.
One of their most renowned handicrafts, sought after by discerning collectors the world over is their beaded baby carriers.
