Pengenalan

Seni tenun merupakan salah satu warisan seni yang memantulkan identiti kebudayaan Melayu yang perlu dipertahan dan diperkukuhkan. Tidak dinafikan bahawa tradisi dan adat istiadat yang masih diamalkan oleh masyarakat Melayu telah menyumbang terhadap kesinambungan seni tenun. Dalam menghadapi era globalisasi, kemasukan pelbagai jenis tekstil yang diimpot ke Brunei bukan sahaja memperkaya budaya tekstil, tetapi juga memberikan cabaran terhadap pengeluaran dan pengaplikasian kain tenunan dalam masyarakat. Pelbagai usaha telah dilakukan untuk melestarikan seni tenun di negara Brunei Darussalam. Kertas kerja ini memfokuskan perbincangan terhadap seni tenunan dan sumbangannya dalam kesinambungan kebudayaan Melayu di Brunei Darussalam.
