Brutti & Besi makes bespoke furniture from used or sustainable materials and empowers young Sabahan artisans to also preserve art, indigenous to Sabah. They were established during the pandemic after its founders turned their hobby into a business as a means to generate income. Over time, they have expanded beyond their garage and now have a fabrication and training site for young new artisans.
