SARAWAK TIKAR (MAT) AN IDEAL GIFT FOR HOUSE WARMING

Posted on June 30, 2019 · Posted in Blog, General, Personal

” MATS made of rattan, locally known as TIKAR have always been popular and these beautiful works of art fetch a high price not only in markets locally but internationally as well.

However, the art of making them is slowly dying as the new generation, especially of the Bidayuh, seems to have no interest in learning how to make them.

What used to be known as Bidayuh kasah is now popular as tikar rotan Kalimantan – a lucrative business at the weekend bazaar in Serikin, a small Bidayuh village in Sarawak.

The town is located about 15km from Bau town and 80km from Kuching and is popular with tourists from the peninsula and Sarawak as well as foreigners.”

An ideal gift to give someone a Sarawak Tikar on most occasions, but specially for “house-warming” a appropriate gift. -ckNatural memory enhancer
