AEWON embarked on its journey into business in 2006 in Jerudong, as a t-shirt producer with a staff of just 12. Today after merely just a decade, AEWON has grown to become a truly home-grown brand with diversified interests. With a total output of over 3 million shirts, a workforce of over 120, and a network of retail, warehousing and production facilities, AEWON is poised to continue its journey forward as Brunei’s leading garment and embroidery company.

Its mission is simple: to create opportunities to spearhead Brunei onto the world of business with quality products, services and values that reflect the spirit of a Quality Nation. Its vision is a commitment in assuring mutual satisfaction in any case, with any one.


Aewon Garment & Emrbroidery was awarded with the first National SME (Small & Medium Enterprise) award on 21st February 2012 in Category 3. A young and rising company then, this award is testament to Aewon’s vision and commitment to provide product and services that are of quality and standard. According to the company, this award has further strengthened Aewon’s resolve to continuously find new innovations, marketing strategies and deliver affordable high-quality products to its customers.


Its product offerings have grown substantially over its history. Today, AEWON had extended to a variety of stores, from mass-market stores such as the, BWN Store and Gildan Store that sells souvenirs and high-quality everyday garments to the corporate labour-intensive market through the PPE Store. This year, AEWON is also the kit provider for the national team in the Hassanal Bolkiah Trophy 2018, the country’s most prized footballing competition.

AEWONs ambition and values has proven itself to be key features in its attempt to lift the nation as a whole. Only time will tell whether this vision can be fully achieved. For more information, visit AEWON.
