SYMPOSIUM THEME

"Satu Rumpun, Satu Warisan"

One Root, Shared Heritage

 

Selamat datang. Welcome to all our guests!

We are proud and honoured to be given the opportunity to host the 3rd ASEAN Traditional Textiles Symposium 2011 in Kuala Terengganu, Terengganu. The Symposium hopes to further endorse and recognize the importance of key undertakings by member countries at the 2nd Symposium in Manila 2009.

 

Amongst others, they are:

· To give respect and due consideration to the socio-economic circumstances of textile creators and custodial communities.

· To promote and encourage the techniques and use of indigenous materials by master craftsmen and weavers in traditional textile production.

· To inculcate the importance of having ethical responsibility in the production and marketing of traditional textiles by the entrepreneurs and producers.

 

· To encourage the wearing of traditional textiles and costumes among the peoples of ASEAN.

· To create a new paradigm for preservation of the traditional textile by making it as living craft and thereby sustaining the related industry.

With this in mind the 3rd ASEAN Traditional Textiles Symposium in Kuala Terengganu, Terengganu hopes to promote the thematic objective which is to preserve legacy and tradition of these traditional textiles and to realize its commercial potentiality for sustainability.

The ASEAN Symposium on Traditional Textiles : A Brief Background

In December 2005, the 1st ASEAN Symposium on Traditional Textiles was held in Jakarta, Indonesia. The aim of the symposium was to highlight the functional and symbolic role that traditional textiles play in our region, suggesting a common framework of beliefs and customs in many Southeast Asian societies. Textile specialists, researchers, scholars and entrepreneurs from seven of the 10 ASEAN countries participated in the symposium, along with textile experts and enthusiasts from Canada, the U.S., the Netherlands, UK and Germany. There were a total of 130 participants.

The Symposium was organized by the Himpunan Wastraprema, the Indonesian Traditional Textiles Society, a group of textile researchers and collectors who are working towards the preservation and study of indigenous weaving. The symposium was organized mainly on a volunteer basis and funded by corporate sponsorships and private donations. It was supported and endorsed by the ASEAN Secretariat which was the venue of the symposium.

In bringing together the ASEAN countries and the rest of the world people who are committed to the preservation of traditional Southeast Asian textile, the 1st Symposium was successful. It was on the basis of the productive outcome and the gains made during the 1st Symposium in Jakarta in 2005 that Himpunan Wastraprema (HW), in collaboration with the Museum Foundation of the Philippines (MFP), was encouraged to spearhead, once again, the 2nd symposium held in Manila in February 2009. As the host institution in the Philippines, MFP collaborated with the National Museum of the Philippines. The 2nd symposium was funded mainly by a grant from the ASEAN Foundation with corporate sponsorships and government support from the host country.

The focus of the 2nd symposium was to broaden the objectives of the 1st symposium to include a plan for a comprehensive training and support program for a new generation of traditional textile artisans and weavers in Southeast Asia to ensure continuity of traditions. Moreover, the similarities of some weaving patterns and motifs in certain traditional cultures in Southeast Asia were also highlighted to illustrate the interconnectedness and links of cultures and traditions in pre-modern times.

Also, in Manila, the solidarity among ASEAN nations was reaffirmed with the signing of the “Agreement on the Establishment, Organization and Management of the ASEAN Traditional Textile Art Community” or ASEAN TTAC. This new body is tasked to oversee the planning of subsequent symposia and to work with the host country.

In the same forum in Manila, the now internationally recognized ASEAN textile gathering voted Malaysia as the 3rd host and unanimously elected Associate Professor Sulaiman Abdul Ghani as the first president of ASEANTTAC.

Objectives of ASEANTTAC

1. To harness the creative energies of Southeast Asian textiles artisans for their benefit and that of their communities

2. To recognize the importance of cultural diversities existing in the respective textile producing communities of Southeast Asia.

3. To facilitate community-based development strategies to fully maximize human and economic resources.

Muzium Negeri Terengganu . The museum was officially opened on April, 20 1996 by the then Sultan of Terengganu, Sultan Mahmud Al-Muktafibillah Shah. It is located in Bukit Losong and covers an area of 27 hectares that includes 4 main buildings, the Maritime Museum and 5 traditional houses. It is the largest museum in Malaysia. Located at the Main Museum, visitors can view the permanent exhibition at the Textile Gallery which features the history of textile development in Malaysia, especially as it refers to locally produced fabric such as songket, batik, gerus, limar, pelangi and telepuk.

Yayasan Tuanku Nur Zahirah (YTNZ). Founded in 2007, Yayasan Tuanku Nur Zahirah is a foundation under the royal patronage of Her Majesty the Queen of Malaysia, Seri Paduka Baginda Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Nur Zahirah. It aims to preserve and enhance indigenous craft and heritage while helping to improve the livelihoods of artisans, weavers and craftsmen. YTNZ is committed to helping underprivileged communities in the state to attain reasonable and sustainable income through provision of skills training, creating new and additional employment and encouraging entrepreneurship. Since its establishment, YTNZ chose to play a central role in stimulating the songket-weaving industry, a Malay heritage that still exist in a few parts of Malaysia, but most predominantly in the east coast state of Terengganu.  Focusing on trade, not aid, YTNZ empowers weavers in raising their income and taking an active role in the shaping of their future by making the leap from informal cottage industry to international commerce.

It is noted for its high quality fabrics and intricate design. Noor Arfa is the largest batik producer in the country and has been manufacturing batik for the global market for more than 20 years. It has distribution centres throughout Malaysia. It employs a strong force of 200 employees and the factory itself occupies a sprawling 2.5 acres site in the Cendering Industrial Area of Kuala Terengganu and houses not only the manufacturing facility but also one of the Malaysia's largest batik showroom.
