Three hip, 20-something KL-ites—Arthur and Arnold Loh, and Hugh Koh (two brothers and a long-time friend)—launched Pestle & Mortar, a playful T-shirt label that realizes their long-held dream to start a business together. Designed to show “KL through our eyes,” the tees are printed with artful photos of KL taken by Arthur that reference everyday icons: a plate of Indomie, the ubiquitous, cheap noodle dish; a close-up of colorful ais, or popsicles, an essential snack of every KL childhood; an upside-down shot of the Lorong Haji Taib street sign, referencing the area’s infamous past as a red light district. Designs are available online and at their minimalist showroom in Damansara Heights.
