RIDING THE WAVE OF BENAK
Neng’s ‘Benak’ series (Tidal Bore) is an original gender-neutral collection
that captures the essence of one of Sarawak’s most iconic events;
a natural phenomenon where water travels up a river against the direction of the current,
causing waves as high as 3 metres.
It is celebrated as a festival (Pesta Benak) by the locals, including tourists from the Peninsular
and around the globe.
Expressing the significance of these natural tide forms in her design,
every piece fosters an identity of its own and a story to be told.
Discovering HIDA-YEAT is like wearing a piece of Borneo – where nature meets culture.
