WINNING SUBMISSIONS OF THE HASANAH GOLD THREADS AWARDS

DSC02878-sm.jpg

BANGIE ANAK EMBOL

Ikat

Best Traditional

Intense and well executed natural dye colours on silk threads. This pua kumbu is an original design inspired by a dream, in the tradition of the Iban ‘dream weavers’, of 8 tiang runyai (ceremonial poles) for the 8 motifs of Meni, the weaving goddess; and the heavens with the spirit of Singalong Burung, the God of War.

DANNY BIN MOHAMAD ZULKIFLI

Embroidery & Embellishment

Best Traditional

Beautifully executed traditional keringkam head scarf of Sarawak with old motifs, to create a stunning overall golden impact.

_KCP9733sm.jpg
_KCP9741sm.jpg

THE RANEE SDN BHD

Plaiting

Best Innovative

Well-designed contemporary basket with the stainless steel rim instead of the traditional tree bark. Natural fibers (rattan and resam) are used as well as synthetic box-straps. The wavy motif completes the fresh aesthetics of the piece.

_KCP9739sm.jpg
_KCP9752sm.jpg

MUHAMMAD HILMI BIN MUHAMMAD HAFNI

Embroidery & Embellishment

Best Innovative

The art of tekat is well expressed in its fineness in this framed artwork, entitled ‘Flow from Heaven’. The use of religious script, rather than the traditional floral and cloud motifs, combine Malay tradition with Islamic influences and allow such works to be marketed to the wider Islamic world.

_KCP9750sm.jpg

NGOT BINTI BI

Plaiting

Best Traditional

This intricate open lattice plaited pandanus mat carries the traditional motif of the turtle which symbolizes longevity. Made with outstanding skills, all the more impressive given the advanced age of the 91-year-old maker.

_KCP9761sm.jpg
_KCP9791sm.jpg

SERI GEDONG

Supplementary Weft

Best Traditional

This sampin in the songket Sarawak technique demonstrates flawless weaving to the extent that it could be used reversibly. This piece is also commendable for its use of quality gold threads.

_KCP9787sm.jpg
_KCP9814sm.jpg

SHAH NOR RAMIN BIN MOHAMAD

Ikat

Best Innovative

Impressive quality of design and technique in this kain songket limar, a result of the groundwork laid by Tenun Pahang Diraja in Penjara Penor.

_KCP9812sm.jpg
DSC02894-sm.jpg

DAVIS ANAK MERING

Supplementary Weft 

Best Innovative

This pua sungkit has been executed with precision and vibrancy. The dedication of the young male weaver, relatively uncommon, to practise this now rare technique is applauded.

DSC02888-sm.jpg
_KCP9714sm.jpg

NYONYA HERITAGE ART

Beadwork

Special Mention

Framed traditional glass-beaded Nyonya slippers as artwork for decoration, with patterns in two well-paired variations of colour combinations.

_KCP9686sm_edited.jpg
_KCP9723sm.jpg

ONG WAN FEN & HASMAH BINTI YAMIN

Supplementary Weft

Special Mention

Innovative use of the weaving technique to produce an artwork, entitled ‘Garden Alight’. New fibers - transparent nylon for the back weave, with colours brought in through metallic, dyed filament and dyed spun silk yarns - are used, highlighted beautifully when lit. The interchangeable frames also add flexibility.

_KCP9722sm.jpg
_KCP9746sm.jpg

RAMSAY ONG LIANG THONG

Drawing & Stamping

Special Mention

This artwork explores the use of batik textile as a collage with other natural material on a tree bark cloth as the main canvas. The sheer batik block still allows the bark cloth to be visible and forms a good background to the painted hornbill.

_KCP9742sm_edited.jpg
_KCP9768sm.jpg

MANDONA JUSLY

Plaiting

Special Mention

Innovative mat in the use of materials – a brown rattan fiber (wai seledah/ wai bala) traditionally used for building purposes has been utilised by this Penan weaver to substitute yellow rattan, increasingly scarce in the forests. The diagonal design adds a contemporary touch to the piece.

_KCP9766sm.jpg
_KCP9775sm.jpg

JULIANA ANAK EMBROSE

Beadwork

Special Mention

This beadwork, made with glass beads arranged in traditional Sarawak patterns, is attached to handcrafted bamboo fish-traps to be used as light fittings. Innovation is demonstrated in extending the use of beadwork from dress into interior decoration.

_KCP9770sm.jpg
_KCP9821sm.jpg

HELMI BIN CHEK

Drawing & Stamping

Special Mention

Innovative use of combination of multiple techniques including batik with linut or sago flour, combined with selective silk-screen and hand-stamping with gold.

_KCP9816sm.jpg
_KCP9783sm.jpg

CRISNA BINTI MOJUPI

Embroidery & Embellishment 

Special Mention

A good example of the traditional double-sided dual colour sigal, made with a technique known as sulaman pis, used in Rungus celebrations. A head piece worn by men – the black side is displayed during the day whilst the orange is usually used at night.

DSC02936-sm.jpg
DSC02862-sm.jpg

NANCY ANAK NGALI

Ikat

Special Mention

Eco-friendly alternative use of linut (sago flour) instead of paraffin wax for batik, with pleasing overall textile pattern and colour.

DSC02851-sm.jpg
_KCP9831sm.jpg

EMIS @ EMMILIANAH BINTI DAHUN

Embroidery & Embellishment 

Special Mention

Beautiful and intricate specimen of the sulaman linangkit embroidery needlework of the Dusun Lotud ethnic group. The trademark geometric motif creates a result that remarkably resembles a tapestry weave.

_KCP9828sm_edited.jpg
_KCP9825sm.jpg

BATIK LINUT SDN BHD

Drawing & Stamping

Special Mention

Eco-friendly alternative use of linut (sago flour) instead of paraffin wax for batik, with pleasing overall textile pattern and colour.
