In the ever-evolving landscape of fashion and sustainability, the collaboration between Fipper, the renowned homegrown footwear brand, and Petron Malaysia, a leading Asian oil company, marks an exciting and forward-thinking venture. This partnership is set to unveil a unique collection of Slip-On and Flip-Flop footwear in October 2023, showcasing a harmonious blend of style, comfort, and Eco-consciousness.
The Essence of the Collaboration
Fipper, widely recognized for its commitment to crafting comfortable, eco-friendly, and stylish footwear, has joined forces with Petron Malaysia. At first glance, these two entities may seem worlds apart, but their collaboration represents a convergence of values and a shared dedication to making a positive impact to the environment. This venture embodies the spirit of innovation, as it seeks to redefine not only footwear but also consumer expectations regarding Eco-conscious products.
“When we first started this brand Fipper, petrol stations became our important distribution points. We are excited to unveil this collaboration with Petron Malaysia, which brings together our passion for footwear with Petron’s environmental philosophy ‘Protect our Environment Today for a Better Tomorrow’. The result is a collection that not only looks great but also aligns with the values of our environmentally conscious customers,” said Choong Jee Von, CEO of Fipper.
“At Petron, we are encouraged by the national agenda of supporting the local entrepreneurs. The collaboration with Fipper, a homegrown brand that has since expanded from Malaysia to international markets, signifies our support for the local economy goes beyond fuelling the nation. The Slip-On and Flip-Flop footwear under the Petron X Fipper collaboration are crafted in Petron’s brand signature colours – red and blue. It utilises sustainable materials in its production, showing our intention to increase the eco-consciousness level amongst our customers. Remember, it’s a matter of taking continuous small steps to improve our environment for our communities.” said Mr. Danny Chen, Marketing Manager of Petron Malaysia.
Since 2021, Petron Malaysia started the ‘Sapot Lokal’ campaign to boost local businesses by providing local entrepreneurs a platform to showcase their products, either by using the vast network of its service station’s Treats store or by collaborating in projects.
