Upcycling Telekung Project: ZAAHARA x SURI
For the past 2 years or so, we've been collecting used telekung and representatives from Kloth Cares will come over on monthly basis to collect them to be re-used or recycled.
Alhamdulillah end of year 2020, we've had the opportunity to meet with the founder of Suri Lifestyle, a Malaysian social enterprise, that strives to empower underprivileged / B40 mothers by providing financial opportunity and living skill of sewing.
All the used-telekungs sent to us are now being upcycled instead, to make into new products!
Pieces from this collection are made with love and effort by these amazing and hardworking women. Best part is that all the pieces in this collection are things that we busy on-the-go Muslims need in our lives - masks, pouches, wristlets, tote bags.
Do check them out and giving both, the used-telekungs, as well as the underpriviledged mothers, a second chance in life :)
