The first in a series of animal inspired designs, the Macan (Tiger) fan is a strong representation of Asian strength and power
Sumatran Tiger Leather Fan, handmade by Pubumésu in collaboration with Canaan for WWF Indonesia as a symbol of strength and power.

To highlight their plight, Pubumésu has collaborated with Canaan Bali to create the Tiger Fan.

Pubumesu fans use leather from cattle locally sourced on the island of Java, Indonesia. Our carefully selected hides are treated by the team to give our signature, distressed look for that little edge of punk. The outcome, an entirely handcrafted leather accessory - your own bit of portable culture.
Founder Putri Soediono had an eccentric Javanese upbringing, with a deep rooted and rich cultural history. This translates to Pubumésu's unique pieces that tell stories of Indonesian folklore - the smells and colours of bustling markets in this corner of the world, all of which are beautifully translated into timeless and eclectic pieces that will be cherished forever. Pubumésu also works with local craftsmen dedicated to the art of leather craft for every cut, stitch, shaping, forming, and treatment, using tanned leather from cattle found in the island of Java, Indonesia.
