Tanoti Sdn Bhd is a congregation of Sarawakian women weavers and artisans dedicated towards the production, promotion and proliferation of hand-crafted fabrics. This continuously-growing community of craftswomen had its origins in a research and development workshop set up by a foundation established by Her Royal Highness the Queen of Malaysia in 2008, the Yayasan Tuanku Nur Zahirah.


The workshop was privatised in 2012 pursuant to a restructuring exercise undertaken by the foundation. Tanoti aims to make good the vision of the foundation, that is to improve lives and livelihoods of womenfolk and rural communities through the ancient art of songket weaving.

Our Mission


to maintain a cohesive community of artisans and designers
dedicated to the ancient craft of songket
our inspiration is to harvest their inspiration *


to arrest the decline of ancient techniques of songket weaving;
to make sure such techniques continue to be practised
within the Tanoti community
immortalizing our heritage *

 Shifting the paradigm

the reaches of the exquisite songket have not be fully developed;
we seek to progress the songket with new markets,
new applications and new techniques
mapping the songket journey *


what we do

Every Tanoti piece is a presentation of skill and dedication. Every piece would have passed through many passionate hands, working many hours over many days.

The purchase of a Tanoti piece is a promise to love and cherish it with the same soul as when it was made.
