Interesting Places In Malaysia - Beautiful Designs

Kelantan is well-known for its handicrafts, such as its batik cloths and wood carvings. One of the state’s best-known crafts is its silverware - products which range from practical (such as ashtrays, plates and cups) to purely ornamental (such as rings and bracelets), but which are all renowned for their intricate details and elegant designs.

 

Modern machines are used sparingly in Kelantanese silversmithing, as there’s a limit to what machines can accomplish in this field. The secret behind the silverware’s beauty is the patience and skill of the silversmiths, who carefully hand-craft every piece of silver into a work of art.

If you’re looking to get yourself a silvery piece of Kelantan, the best place to look would be the factories and shops at Kampung Sireh, Kampung Marak or Kampung Badang.
