Starting your Christmas shopping early, mama? Gift your loved ones upcycled accessories in beautiful prints
Any fans of Carpenter & Cook here? The artisan bakery and vintage home store off Bukit Timah will be hosting en exciting new shopping experience from 1 – 3 November that’s sustainable and guilt-free!
A section of the Carpenter & Cook space will be transformed into a ‘workshop’, where you’re invited to select from an extensive range of exquisite off-cuts and sample swatches donated by interior furnishing company Romanez. Local social enterprise Sowing Room will then provide a one-off bespoke service for you to have fabrics of your choice made into tote bags, straw holders, clutches, lunch bags, cushion covers, pouches, oven mitts and more! The items will then be ready for collection or delivery in 10 working days.
Sowing Room is a social enterprise that works with foreign domestic workers who have been victims of abuse. Because they do not have access to work while their cases are being investigated, they learn to sew at Sowing Room and are paid for each item they make. This gives them access to a fair wage during the period of unemployment.
Come early to touch and try the products on display, mama! You can have a look and feel of the kind of items you can get made, and while you’re contributing to this great cause, you’ll also get a little perk at Carpenter & Cook – for every job done, customers will receive a complimentary cup of coffee… see you there!
