In this case, a massive site has been turned over to the production and promotion of Malaysian handicrafts (for which read "Malay").
As well as various shops and boutiques, the complex has a museum, a craft village where interactive demonstrations are held, and most interestingly, an artists' colony.
It's certainly not an unpleasant place to potter round for an hour or two -- for any more than that, you would have to be obsessed with handicrafts.
It can be reached easily on foot from KLCC or Bukit Bintang, and is best combined with a visit to the nearby Heritage Centre.
