Raising Funds for Non-Profit Organisations
We have partnered with a number of non-profit organisations with the aims to raise funds for good causes. Our Nick Munro jelly mould and Pink pendants were specially designed to create awareness and raise funds for Breast Cancer Welfare Association Malaysia, while Mia collection, a collaboration with Malaysia’s contemporary artists, was created in aid of Badan Warisan Malaysia (The Heritage of Malaysia Trust).
We have a responsibility to preserve and impart the knowledge and craftsmanship that Royal Selangor has mastered since its founding in 1885. Royal Selangor’s production facility in Malaysia is staffed by almost 100% locals, showing our commitment to developing a skilled team of artisans over the long term.
