SEOUL, Dec. 6 (Yonhap) -- Dongbu Daewoo Electronics said Wednesday it has introduced new lineups of customized washing machines and ovens in Malaysia to appeal to the fast-growing Southeast Asian market.

The company has released follow-up versions of its Batik Care Washer and ovens tailored to handle Malaysia's traditional delicate handmade fabrics called batik with care and cook Southeast Asian cuisines properly.

Dongbu Daewoo said it has sold more than 10,000 units of Batik Care Washers since last year, and sales of the customized ovens have risen sharply in recent months.
