Irau Lun Bawang Festival, Lawas Arts & Crafts

Location : Lawas Town, Limbang Division, Sarawak, Malaysia.

Lawas may be small in size but it is a giant when it comes to arts and crafts, thanks to the decades of guidance and support of Kraftangan Malaysia. It was timely to showcase the Lun Bawang other talents beside their musical keenness here at the Irau venue. Ceramic beads and tree bark crafts from the Lun Bawang community plus the Malay machetes were very impressive.
