Pua Kumbu is an Iban Ritual Textiles or Sacred Blanket.


Kumang(The mother goodness of Iban) is a great weaver of Pua Kumbu & in a modern day Sendi Anak Ketit  is great weaver of Pua Kumbu from Saribas.The story says she gets a pattern of her Pua Kumbu from her dream.

Pua Kumbu is a traditional patterned multicolored ceremonial cotton cloth used by the Iban, made and used in Sarawak, Malaysia. Pua kumbu are woven by Iban women and are considered to be Sacred objects. They are used for lifecycle rituals and special events including the birth of a child, coming of age celebrations, receipt of an important item to a longhouse, and to screen a corpse that is being laid out in a longhouse prior to burial.Beside Pua Kumbu, there are also Pua Sungkit and Pua Karap.

 The pua kumbu is not just a blanket. It is a sacred ceremonial and ritual textile. The word pua in Iban means 'blanket', kumbu means 'to wrap'. Together, the two words mean a 'grand blanket'. However, the pua kumbu is very seldom used as a sleeping blanket. It is reserved for the times when men and women seek an encounter with the spiritual.
