Wat je gaat doen

Your journey into the world of ethical fashion starts here! You'll be taking a behind-the-scenes look into the rapidly growing global slow fashion revolution at our state of the art maker space, Me.reka, located in the booming creative hub of Publika in KL.

In this experience, we will share with you all the need-to-knows about ethical fashion which we have learnt through our years in this space. Blended with the personal story of our "why" and journey as a brand, this is the perfect experience for any fashion enthusiast, aspiring entrepreneur or curious traveller. The first hour of our time together will be conducted by our small (but mighty) team of rag-tag slow fashion revolutionists.

The remainder of the experience will be a hands-on workshop conducted by our two master tailors, Ashfaq and Sultan, who will tutor you on how to put together your own slow fashion piece (no prior craft experience required) in the form of an upcycled banner pouch. As seasoned craftsmen having travelled from their home countries of Pakistan, tap on their decades of life experience and hear their stories for yourself how the good, bad and ugly of the fashion industry has impacted them over the yea
Other things to note

My name is Ambika and I'm one of the partners of Biji-biji Ethical Fashion, an award winning slow fashion brand in Malaysia. I've been in this space for the past 5 years and together with the rest of our fun-loving (but not any less professional) team, we can't wait to show you the ins-and-outs of sustainable fashion and how YOU can make a difference through what you choose wear.

Co-hosted with Hannah (our then-intern turned production manager) and our master tailors, Sultan and Ashfaq, expert makers hailing from Pakistan in search for better livelihoods for their families back home.

I had the experience all to myself. It was well organized and communication in prior was really good, too. Because I was alone I got a quite customized experience. It was great to know more facts about sustainable fashion in Malaysia and new upcycle products...and I sewed for the first time!!! :) All in all it was a great experience

Ambika and her team at Biji-biji are knowledgable and truly passionate about ethical fashion! In a short period of time, we were able to understand the 'why' of their work and how our choices as consumers influence not only the wellbeing of the environment, but also the wellbeing of the people who make the goods we use (like clothes!). Sultan and Ashfaq, their master tailors, were friendly and did their best to make sure we were able to enjoy the workspace. Listening to them and their story of how they made their journey from Pakistan to find themselves as Biji-biji's backbone of ethical fashion production all the way in Malaysia was awe-inspiring. I would highly recommend anyone who would like to learn about the RIGHT way to approach fashion as an industry or is passionate about sustainability to go on this experience!
