The bead culture of Sarawak, part of a greater Malaysian heritage, is rooted in centuries of tradition. An ancient maritime trading network linked Sarawak to the world. The beads most treasured today came from production centres on the Malay Peninsula, from India, China and even further afield. In the hands of Sarawak‘s craftswomen and collectors, these masterpieces of the glassmaker‘s art became intrinsically “Borneo Beads”.
The second edition of International Beads Conference (BIBCo) will be held in Kuching, on the 7-9 October 2011, with conferences, Beads exhibitions and sales and workshops. This international event is organized by Crafthub Sdn.Bhd.
Crafthub is a non-profit organisation which aims to promote and sell Sarawak handicrafts in an economically viable way, with international standard quality control. Crafthub was set up in 2008 by a small group of people who understand the various crafts of Sarawak and who are passionate about bringing Sarawak craftwork to that wider world. It promotes handicrafts as a worthwhile occupation that provides a viable living for local craftspeople, and endeavours to encourage the younger generation into craft-oriented careers before many skills inherent in Sarawak’s craft heritage are lost.
Special pre– and post– conference tours to the Bario Highlands will be organized for BIBCo participants.
