Indigenous Crafts

Ethnic & indigenous crafts are dying out with the advent of mechanisation & generic crafts.  The National Textile Museum, in its efforts to create awareness about these dying crafts demonstrations, have organised demonstrations during the Textile Carnival 2011. And if u missed it, u can also visit the Pohon Budi Gallery, where a kiosk shows all the many crafts of Malaysia and its traditional production methods, including the materials and tools used.
