Determined to prevent the traditional weaving skills of her homeland being lost forever, Jennifer P Linggi, a curator of Sabah Art Gallery, spent many years visiting the kampungs of Sabah, formerly North Borneo. During this time, she studied the lifestyles of the various communities, learning in the process the extent to which their handicrafts reflect their everyday preoccupations and collective values. The amazing artistry that has been practiced in the kampungs for centuries is impressively captured in the illustrations and anecdotes in the pages of this book.
