We know, buying from established eco-friendly labels, which are often based abroad, can be damaging to our bank accounts. But the good news is, we now have some great options in our turf. Consider local shops from the region that offer affordable but stylish pieces. We already talked about emerging sustainable fashion brands from Singapore and the Philippines, so this time we're listing promising sustainable labels from Malaysia.

Homegrown womenswear brand SAYANG places an emphasis on creating contemporary basics with classic silhouettes.
