Welcome to Sangon & Co!
Within the 3 months since Sangon & Co. was founded, it has grown to become more than just a jewellery brand.
Especially in light of recent events, we have worked even harder to ensure that everything we do as a brand spreads happiness and good vibes! Needless to say, it has been a joy interacting with everyone who came by to support us.
Here is a little bit about us, the two girls behind Sangon & Co!
"Being both Chinese and Bidayuh, I have always felt a little lost because I was often teased for not being able to speak both languages fluently compared to my other family members. They called me "budak orang putih". But growing up here in Kuching with traditions and culture from both sides, it really taught me to embrace who I am culturally, which lead to the inception of Sangon & Co. I felt a responsibility to share my knowledge in a way that I knew how and a yearning to learn even more about our Malaysian tradition and culture. Sangon & Co. is definitely my happy place and I can't wait to see what the future has in store for us." - Martiana xx
"My favourite part of Sangon & Co. is hands down the infusion of Borneo's heritage and culture. While working to share it with you, I have discovered so, so much more about Borneo myself! I have been studying overseas for 4 years now, but the pride of being from such a humble hometown has never wavered. Creating jewellery inspired by this place has allowed me to always keep a piece of Borneo with me wherever I am. Sangon & Co. has been a great blessing to me, and I hope that it will be the same for you too! Be sure to join us and be part of our journey as we continue to create more sangon pieces for you!" - Annie xx
