The fabrics are created by traditional weavers from the Maybank Foundations ‘Maybank Women Eco-Weaver Program’, featured as one of the many highlights of this years’ experience of ‘Golf Like Never Before’. Maybank Women Eco Weavers is one of Maybank Foundation’s flagship programs in line with humanising financial services. This program is essentially designed to promote commonalities in ASEAN countries by enriching and promoting traditional woven textiles in a sustainable manner for various communities in becoming economically independent whilst advocating financial inclusion at the same time.
