Pantun Pins are generally made from iron and brass which, lasts very long

FOR the things that we wear, it is usually more than just functionality. There is often a hint of emotional connection to the clothing or accessories that we put on.

With that in mind, a group of four friends – Shafiq Aznir (Shaq), Syafiq Mohd Noh, Shawn Tan and Chern Loo – were motivated to introduce a product that is edgy and, at the same time, represents Malaysian culture.

They eventually settled on lapel pins, which are typically attached to a suit or tie. Lapel pins can sometimes be seen as serious and boring, but the group of friends wanted to offer pins that resonate with the youngsters, making it a fun item to wear.

They launched Pantun Pins in April last year after a year of identifying the trend among local consumers.
