Leather products have been ruined by mould after being left untouched in a Malaysian store which had to close down two months ago due to the coronavirus.
The startling images of ruined products were taken in a Malaysian shopping centre as the country prepares to enter its third month of coronavirus lockdown.
Stores across the country have begun to reopen as restrictions are eased.
Some of them appear ruined by the mould which reportedly grew on both leather and faux-leather display models as they were left for almost two months untouched.
Malaysia’s movement control order (MCO) started on 18 March and has been extended until 9 June.
It is unclear where in the country the images were taken but some have suggested it was in the Sabah province.
One bag with a price tag of £126 is completely covered in mould and reports suggest the damage could have been caused by the air conditioning being turned off in the shop.
