Come on inside! 

Among meaningful items to remember about Sarawak are those artifacts with tribal motifs and designs. Browse through our pages that shows samples of pictures of TERABAI / KELEMPIT (dayak wooden shields) and head replicas of the iconic Rhinocerus hornbills. Incidentally for a great social reason, Sarawak is called The Land of The Hornbills. So if you are a Sarawakian, its only right to identify yourself with it. What better ways to have some of these items in your keeping. And if you are one coming for a visit or just passing through, it would be nice for you to bring one back home. 

Traditional Designs and Dayak Motifs. Wood carving, making terabai, kelempit, paruh Kenyalang and Signages with Dayak designs.

TERABAI / PERISAI DAYAK / KELEMPIT 

These are new versions of the traditional dayak warrior shields called 'terabai' in Iban and 'Kelempit' by the Dayak Kenyah. Instead of being decorated with human hair and painted with tribal motifs, we have them engraved and stained, coated with varnish for a lustrous appearance. These 'terabai' or 'kelempit' are decorated items with the mark of Borneo natives. Placed them on your walls as an identity or as a masterpiece to remember Sarawak. 

Paruh Kenyalang

Decorative Items

These are wooden crafted items resembling the head of the Rhinocerus buceros hornbill. We also have a more artistic version of engraving the casque with dayak designs. These birds are protected by laws as their population in the wild are fast diminishing due to the destruction of their natural habitats. As a sign to support their existence, place them high in any part of your house, an acknowledgement they deserved.
