Young Muslim Malay Woman, Kuching

A young Muslim Malay woman wearing baju kurung (enclosed dress) – the national dress of Malaysia and Brunei – and tudong (headscarf). The baju kurung consists of a full-length skirt and long-sleeved, collar-less blouse that extends to just above the knees. The blouse is typically made of silk with colourful patterns reminiscent of traditional batik cloth. Not all Malay Muslim women wear headscarves, nor do they always wear baju kurung, even though they may always wear a tudong in public. (Brian K. Smith photo.)
