Red Orang Ulu Kabo Necklace (SARAWAK)
The Kabo is also known locally as ‘Buah Kabo’ which resembles a fruit. It is called a bobble and it is made from hundreds of glass seed beads. In Sarawak, the Kabo is commonly used by the Orang Ulu community, namely the Kelabit, Kayan and Kenyah people, who live in the highlands of Sarawak Borneo. This tradition goes back hundreds of centuries, as the Kabo was only used by the tribal men.
