See AOA Ethdoc 1814: Notes by B A L Cranstone:
'three gold and silver brocade textiles, bought from an instructress at the Arts and Crafts Centre (run by the Museum), but made in the Kampong Ayer, Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei
... 1) A red kain (woman's skirt) ...
... 2) A man's head square (made into a sort of turban) ...
... 3) A man's waist band (rolled or folded) ...
The last two form part of a man's ceremonial dress. This consists of a head cloth, a short kain (skirt) and waist band, worn over a tunic and trousers of (usually) black cotton.'
