“Our future depends on how well many different kinds of people can live and work together.”- Malaysia’s Father of Independence, Tunku Abdul Rahman
Let’s uphold unity and embrace the diversity of this beautiful nation. With this Projek 57 X Earth Heir Tunku Mask, we hope to inspire pride in all who live in this land with values of celebrating one another. That our strength is in our diversity.
We are so proud of these masks and the people we work with. The embroidery is done by a very talented Refugee artisan who uses free hand embroidery for the Tunku image. He has a manual embroidery machine (without computerisation) which he then uses to craft each image of Tunku.
