Founded in the year 2015 by four city girls, which are Junees Teoh, Jong Wei Wei, Charlyne Goh, and the brand’s ambassador – Juwei Teoh, Materialipstick offers a perfect piece of bag that goes well with any outfits and elevates your look to another different new level. To them, a bag can say a thousand words about a woman. It’s a timeless piece of fashion accessories that uniquely defines who you are.
Crafted with the genuine calf leather, canvas, suede, and gold or silver lined metal detailing, each Materialipstick bag is a fashion statement by itself. With a structured knot as the front flap, the Alyson collection had a great vogue, and they are best described as “minimal, but with a twist”.
