The tall, thorny leaves of mengkuang are collected, boiled, dyed and dried under the sun for number of weeks before turned into colorful crafts. To weave mengkuang needs certain season only. If weather is too hot, #mengkuang cannot be processed.


Thorny leaves of mengkuang

Local artist only can weave during rainy season or decide to awake for the whole night to complete mengkuang product. Weaving during hot weather will damage the mengkuang leaves. 


They (customers) praise my products saying it looks simple but they don’t have idea how complicated the process is.
