Explore Selangor: Barakaff Exclusive

Malaysia is a country that is rich in cultural diversity, and it reflect in even what they wear. One of Malaysian’s pride and joy is ubdoubtly songket and batik. While Team E.T.A haven’t had the opportunity to visit a songket factory yet, but we do had the opportunity to actually see how batik clothings is made.

No.Sorry to disappoint you if you are expecting us to bring you to the East Coast to see some beautiful batiks. We’re not bringing you to Kelantan or Terengganu this time. We are bringing you to Gombak, Selangor instead.

Surprised? We are surprised too. One would have thought that Kelantan and Terengganu is the home of Batik but apparently Selangor is full of hidden treasure.
