Kob-i In Singapore

Kob-i #04 : Karung Guni

Often unnoticed and left without much attention, karung gunis — local scrap dealers in Singapore, are underappreciated. The purpose of these Kob-i NFTs is to celebrate the karung guni men and women in Singapore. 

Karung Guni is a Malay phrase for gunny sack, which was used to hold newspapers in the olden days. Today, karung gunis visit residences door-to-door to acquire unwanted items in Singapore.  

Karung guni people often resell their collected items at specialised markets, which are eventually recycled or reused in Singapore.
