Above are a few examples of traditional cloth weaving in Brunei. The earliest recorded mention can be traced back to Sultan Bolkiah’s reign from 1485 to 1524. One of the most well-known designs is the Jongsarat pattern. It is said to be the design above all others, reflecting the skill, artistic beauty and fine workmanship in which a quality cloth possesses. There are many other designs such as the Kain Bertabur, Sipugut, Sukmaindera, Silubang Bangsi and Arab Gagati. For more information about this tradition head over to the brunei resources site. Thanks also to Ana from Brunei for giving me the hint.
