GMBB is a creative community mall in Bukit Bintang that aspires to be an enterprising hub for Malaysian creatives, artists and artisans to do more together. Here are some of the attractions that you should not miss during your visit to GMBB.

Tanoti Crafts aims to put the soul back into the fabric of society with their bare hands. Specializing in Sarawakian hand-woven crafts, Tanoti is a congregation of Sarawakian women weavers and artisans dedicated towards the production, promotion and proliferation of hand-crafted fabrics.

Tanoti (means weave in Sanskrit) was established in 2012 out of an urgent need to save an existing community of weavers from disbanding. The company is 100% owned and managed by Sarawakians and housed 16 weavers.

Combining the preservation of cultural arts, entrepreneurship and community work, Tanoti improves the lives and livelihoods of womenfolk and rural communities through the ancient art of songket weaving. They also help preserve and promote traditional Penan rotan and coiling craft work.
