Old and New

March 13, 2020

"Singapore is a country where old and new exist side-by-side.

From walking downtown through the streets lined with gleaming skyscrapers, 

to stumbling upon temples that are over a hundred years old,

and to discovering a carefully preserved city block of traditional shop-fronts that date back to colonial days. 

It all exists together in harmony and is honored by Singaporeans. 

While in Singapore, I walked through Chinatown to visit the Buddha's Tooth Temple.

and I was very lucky to stumble across a fabric market hidden behind the bustling food dealers called Hawker Stalls.

The fabric I chose is a classic Singapore floral batik pattern that perfectly captures the rich cultural heritage of Singapore.”

It’s Feel Good Friday and we got some good news for ya! So which do you want first… the good news… or more good news?

Good news: We’re so excited to announce that we’ve been given the green light to start making totes again! (Back in April, we were deemed non-essential so we had to stop tote production due to the Governor’s COVID orders). 

More good news: For the past 3 months, we turned our attention to making face masks for our customers and donating face masks to hospital workers (don't worry, we didn’t go into hibernation mode. If anything, we got busier producing all these face masks).
