Beads weaving is very synonym with the Rungus community at the northern part of this Borneo Island. Though they do not produce most of the beads themselves, but they are very skilful at weaving it to create a beautiful tribal patterns for necklaces or for bracelet.

The Rungus practically uses beaded accessories for their whole adornment, as layered necklaces on their neck and crossing their bodice, for their headband and for their ponytail.

In the past, they usually uses seeds from the plants around them. However with the introduction of the industrial beads readily available in the market, most of their creations nowadays are more colourful and easier to weave. However the method of weaving is remain traditional using their bare fingers and a beeswax.

At Chanteek Borneo Gallery, we offer our visitor the experience of beads weaving to created your own bracelet. It is a make and take home experience which you can do with a group of friends or with your family.
