Our Story

Kain (pronounced kah-yin) means cloth in Bahasa Malaysia.

Across Southeast Asia, fabrics are used as portraits of heritage, told by generations of craftspeople. Colors, prints and textures—these are part of their stories. However, as the region adopted Western-centric designs, many local craftspeople have had to either move away from their disciplines or lower their fees just to earn a living.

This is where our story begins. By applying traditional designs to a modern lifestyle,
we can help support craftspeople so they can keep telling their stories. We strive to not only create an income stream for artisans in Southeast Asia, but also give back 10% of our profits to their communities. We want to improve their livelihood through investing in their education, and in doing so, their future.

Our dream? To one day start schools across Southeast Asia in remote regions where we teach young ones education, sports and skills that will carry them and their families far. No one should be left behind.

Join us on this journey.

    Welcome to my shop! I'm from Malaysia but call the USA home now. I hope to be able to share the stories of my region through the products here and help artisans in Southeast Asia. ​​

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

Each item is carefully packed with gift tissue paper and pretty twine. If you'd like an extra touch, please send me a DM with a specific note.

How much goes back to the people who made these items?

For items that come from on-the-ground partners, we ensure a fair wage is paid and then take part of the profit to invest in building up the crafts people's society through programs and skills-based workshop. We do this because sustainable change takes time and requires more than money alone.
