Meet the Artist

Sim started apprenticeship with his father (master rattan weaver Sim Buck Teik) at the age of 17. Unlike his father who is devoted to the Malaysian art form of Rattan weaving, Sim also works with bamboo and creates both traditional and custom products.

The VAWAA experience includes

  • Making round, square and oval shaped products with soft rattan. 
  • Combining rattan with fabric and bamboo.
  • Materials.
  • Your handmade rattan products.
