Somewhere in Kg Cherating, we found the pandanus weaving centre. Entrance is FOC. Unless u go through a tour arranged by the hotel.
The pandanus plant.
The tools. Made of bamboo and scrap metals.
Puan Murni demonstrated to us the process. Beginning with cutting of the pandanus leaves.
She patiently guided the girls.
Once cut, the strips of leaves will be soaked in water for 1 to 2days to soften it. Then they will be dyed according to the color of choice and dried.

Hajar weaving from scratch.
The designs. The patterns are all in the head. They don't use any paper or pictures to guide them.
Merchandise for sale.
The sewing area.
If u are interested to visit the centre or learn weaving, u can contact Puan Murni.
