Noor Arfa is a pioneer of the much acclaimed batik industry in Malaysia. The Noor Arfa story has a humble beginning in 1980 in a small atelier in Kuala Terengganu when the husband and wife team of Wan Mohd. Ariffin and Noor Hijerah started designing and hand-drawing their own batik cloth. The venture, known as Noor Arfa, is an acronym derived from the combination of the names of this young and enterprising couple. It was soon destined to grow by leaps and bounds to the multi-million dollar corporation it is today.
