The rungus from Malaysia

The Rungus are an ethnic group of Borneo accounting around 20 thousand people. They are known to have maintained their ancient traditions to nowdays. The traditional Rungus dress is black, often with hundreds or even thousands of dollars worth of antique beads. Traditionally all Rungus women wore heavy brass coils around their arms, legs and necks. Brass arm coils are often accompanied by white and coral shell bracelets. Rings of brass may also be worn around the waist.
