Himpogot and Tangkong are traditional belts, worn as a part of the female Kadazandusun traditional costume. You can see these belts during grand celebrations such as Kaamatan and even during weddings.

The Himpogot, or known as the money belt, is made out of connected silver coins. The Tangkong, worn at the hip, is made out of copper loops or rings fastened by strings or threads. Traditionally, these belts are worn to represent a person’s wealth. Now, they are heirlooms passed down by many generations.
