Kain Chanteek by Chanteek Borneo is a collection of textiles designed with Sabah’s identity in mind.

The textile designs are based on the motifs from the tapestry, woven cloth, embroidered cloth and the beaded costume of the indigenous from North Borneo. Though most of the textile are designed in a contemporary style, the presentation of the motifs are closer to the traditional styling.
