LAPAN is a collaboration between 8 homegrown craftspeople and designers comprising Oh & Ah, Little Syam, GigiGee and R.A.W Art, with the intention of providing a wide range of beautiful handmade artisan goods. LAPAN, which means "eight" in the Malay language, comes with many positive cultural connotations in the country, representing balance, infinite possibilities and good fortune.
Creations include stationery, jewelry, home decor, art prints, toys and dolls, handmade books, silkscreen products, clay work and footstools. The alliance was founded with a desire to introduce and bring local talent with unique artistic visions to greater heights.
LAPAN also offers art and design workshops such as bookbinding and children's workshops to build interest amongst the public on local arts and craft, primarily those that are handmade.
