The current objective for Koondos! Keningau is to assist the communities in Pagalungan. Hence, we would like to introduce our online shopee store currently selling very unique products sourced from the communities in Pagalungan.
Below are a some photos of the community from Sikalaban village. This village is famous for being able to craft products from wood to house hold utensil. Their products range from spoons, spatulas, pestle and mortar, paddy pounder, etc. The most unique part of their products are the usage of precious wood like "Kayu Belian" Ironwood and many other precious wood harvested / collected from the forest or drift wood by the river bank.
This community has been effected by the covid-19 pandemic direct and in-directly. As they are unable to travel out to the nearest town to sell their fresh produce and products. Hence, Koondos! Keningau setup to give the communities in Pagalungan a digital footprint and hopefully generate income.
