The rain forest of Malaysia produces a variety of valuable forest-based-fibres such as rattan, bamboo, ribu-ribu, bemban, mengkuang, serdang and pandanus.
Rattan or cane is usually used for furniture products, while smaller and more delicate varieties are woven into colourful and multi-functional baskets ranging from waste paper basket to picnic hampers. Bamboo fibres too plays an important role in local culture such as being the resource of choice for the manufacture of the all-purpose boxes, bowls to pencil holders.
The patience and determination of the artisan in weaving strips of bamboo and other selected forest products, produces the most attractive weaving products like the ones found in Sarawak. Bamboo is normally cut, lathed, smoothed and shaped to the required design of the product.
