BloomThis Supports #Lokal
Let's be honest. The pandemic has been hard on all of us, especially so for small local businesses. They aren't big corporations with huge budgets. They're our mums, our neighbours, our uncles & aunties, our friends. They're real people and they need all the help they can get to keep their business running.
In celebration of Merdeka month, we want to do what we can to help these small businesses by shining a spotlight on them and sharing their story. So here it is, a list of amazing local Malaysian brands that deserve your love, from IG shops to up & coming Malaysian start-ups.
Together, let's #kitajagakita and continue to #sapotlokal this Merdeka!

Scared What! - Uniquely Malaysian Streetwear
Scared What! is a local streetwear brand that sports designs that are unapologetically Malaysian. Playing with local Chinese slang and pop culture, it's the kind of style that shouts "if you know, you know".

Summer Olive - Handcrafted Clay Accessories
These. Are. Adorable! We absolutely fell in love with Summer Olive's intricately crafted accessories, and we're sure you will too. Every piece is handcrafted and painted by founders Yvone & Mattia with quality polymer clay.
You can get their cute little designs in the form of earrings, studs and even necklaces. Our favourites are their Pink Peony selection! Don't they look like they came straight out of a fairy tale? 😍
Boss Mama - Postpartum Essentials for Mums
Motherhood is tough - we're speaking from experience! But Boss Mama is making it easier for all us mamas out there!
Founded by two Malaysian Mothers, Shakira & Junita, who had trouble finding a good pumping bra that was functional and comfortable, while being discreet enough for pumping throughout the day.
So they came up with the Real-Support Bra, a game-changing pumping bra. They have since gone to release modernised Bengkungs as well!
Skyn Sin - Soy Candles & Sheet Masks
Need a day of self-pampering? Skyn Sin can provide you with everything you need from a sheet mask tailored to your skin to the soothing aroma of a fragrant soy candle.
