Sarawak Crafts Festival
The Sarawak Craft Festival has brought 100 craft entrepreneurs from throughout the country to the banks of the Sarawak River, from October 26 to November 4.
There are 82 entrepreneurs participating from Sarawak, in addition to eight participants from Sabah, one from Terengganu, three from Kelantan, two from Selangor, one from Melaka, one from Perak and three from Negeri Sembilan.
This festival is being held in conjunction with the Kuching Waterfront Festival 2018, and coincides with the International Dragon Boat Race (October 26-28) and the Sarawak Regatta (November 2-4), which is also being held at the Kuching Waterfront.
Some of the wares on sale include textiles, jungle produce, ceramics, beadwork, accessories, metals and various other crafts.
The Sarawak Craft Festival aims to encourage Malaysians, especially the youth, to appreciate and use locally-made craft products as part of their lifestyle.
