Malaysia Aviation Group partners with Kenny Loh Couture to preserve Peranakan heritage

Malaysia Aviation Group (MAG) has partnered with Kenny Loh, an inspiring local designer, to launch a limited-edition beaded shoe collection in George Town, in the state of Penang, in a bid to preserve Peranakan heritage, culture and traditions through sustainable efforts and to revitalise the local craft scene and its artisans through upcycling efforts.



The Kenny Loh X MAG Sustainable Tomorrow Kasut Manik (beaded shoes) features a unique blend of skilled heritage craftsmanship using upcycled materials from Malaysia Airlines' iconic batik kebaya (dress). Each pair of shoes are 100% handcrafted with 2,000 beads by local artisans from Kenny Loh Couture.



The shoes come in a range of sizes, from EU 37-41, and are available in three colours: Penang Green, Singapore Red and Melaka Blue. Named after the three settlements in the Malayan Peninsular that became home to the Peranakan community, the vivid green, red and blue are the perfect balance of vibrant Peranakan design and colours of Malaysia Airlines.
