Galleria Artisan, is another gallery and retail store concept located in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah at Menara Tun Mustapha (Yayasan Sabah). The Galleria is managed by Kristal Handal Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Innoprise Corporation Sdn Bhd and the marketing arm for Pusat Kraftangan Sabah. Established in early 2016, the Galleria Artisan were officially launch in-conjunction with the Yayasan Sabah Jubilee 50th Year of Operation. The opening ceremony welcomes the Right Honorable Sabah’s Chief Minister, Datuk Seri Panglima Musa Haji Aman for the officiation.
Galleria Artisan aims to promote and develop the handicraft product, manufactured in Pusat Kraftangan Sabah in Keningau and provides a platform for associated vendors and producers of local handicrafts onto the domestic and international market. The strategic location in Kota Kinabalu, known as commercial and business hub for the state of Sabah would help in nurturing and creating a prosperous market for the Galleria. The location also helps to shorten the geographical divide between Kota Kinabalu and Keningau, where Pusat Kraftangan Sabah is located and expand the company reach for a more concentrated local market with increasing buying power.
Social-wise, apart from being a business entity for Kristal Handal Sdn Bhd, Galleria Artisan also housed a mini-workshop to provide training on textile-based production of batik for interested individuals and groups. Trainees would be exposed into the overall manufacturing and production process of batik, under the brand “Batik Bayu” over the period of six months before extending their training programs for another six months. The company hope, with this sort of effort, more capable batik producers would emerge into the local batik industry and recognized batik as a reliable source to improve the standard of living.
The Galleria will be a significant milestone in Pusat Kraftangan Sabah and Kristal Handal Sdn Bhd mode of operation. The concept of conventional and contemporary perspective in handicraft makes Galleria Artisan as one of the “must see” location in Kota Kinabalu.
