Barait is a traditional bag or knapsack popularly used by the Kadazandusun and Murut community in Sabah. This beautiful carry bag is produced out of intricate woven strapping, a type of rattan air that is pliable and yet sturdy.

In the olden days, the Barait was carried everywhere and is the constant companion of the Murut folks. It is used to carry water containers to collect water from rivers for daily use or carry paddy from paddy fields, to carry crops or hunted animals. Stalks in these baskets strapped on their backs, leaving their hands free to carry even more load.

Weaving a Barait often takes about 3 to 7 Days.
