Pua is used as ceremonial cloths to mark milestones — from birth to marriage to funeral and afterlife. A newborn is swaddled in pua for his first bath in the river. When a relative dies, pua is hung up as curtains to shelter the body of the deceased. The textile marks the start of the farming festival, Gawai Batu, and is used to veil the altar (pandong) in farming rituals.
