Threads of Empowerment

Songket weaving is a centuries-old tradition rooted in the cultural fabric of Southeast Asia, particularly Indonesia, Malaysia, and Brunei. Renowned for its intricate designs and luxurious feel, songket fabric is meticulously crafted using a supplementary weft technique, where threads are intricately woven into the fabric to create shimmering motifs. And Tanoti proudly stands as a beacon to preserving these traditions. Rooted in a profound commitment to cultural conservation, Tanoti’s mission extends far beyond mere preservation—it’s about fostering empowerment and sustainable livelihoods for the young women of the Penan community. By providing a platform for these talented artisans, Tanoti not only safeguards cultural heritage but also catalyses economic growth, ensuring that tradition and opportunity intertwine harmoniously.
