Get these 5 home-made items to celebrate Hari Merdeka and Malaysia Day while supporting our fellow Malaysian businesses.
As National Day and Malaysia Day are around the corner, we are in for a celebration. Yet, the pandemic situation in our country is still not improving, so it’s best to spend these public holidays inside the safety of your home.
However, that does not mean that our patriotic celebration should be any lesser than the previous year. To help with that, we listed down 5 locally-made products from our fellow Malaysian entrepreneurs that not only will light up your celebrations but also are practical for daily lives and eye-catching!
Let’s see what are these items!
Hand Woven Mengkuang Bag Halfmoom with Cloth Lining
This tote bag is woven by hand using traditional weaving techniques, often taking long hours due to its meticulousness. However, the end product would be stunning and eye-pleasing, as the colours used interwoven with each other to create symmetrical overlapping patterns.
This tote bag is also reusable and natural, having made from pandanus leaves (mengkuang) crafted by Embun Embun, a home-based shop from Langkawi.
It is also available in variant colours.
