LIMITED EDITION TOTE BAG - IN SUPPORT OF BREAST CANCER (BY AMANDA CHANG)
In conjunction with Breast Cancer Month this October, GIN & JACQIE hosted a bag designing competition with university students to help promote breast cancer awareness among the youth of Kuching. All the submitted designs are being auctioned off, and 100% of the sales will be donated to the Sarawak Breast Cancer Support Group to aid them in creating awareness on breast cancer treatment and prevention methods.
Design by Amanda Chang.
"The breast cancer awareness ribbon is the dominant element of this design, in the middle of the wreath. The wreath symbolises unending life while the yellow rose and rose buds symbolise optimism and friendship. This shows the positive attitudes of the women battling cancer. The two honey bees symbolise determination as bees were not meant to fly due to their anatomy but they did it anyway. Breast cancer patients are no different as they have the unending determination to fight for their lives. The final flower is the heather. It is believed this flower symbolises good luck and gives protection."
