Hello from MATTER!

We are a socially motivated brand based in Singapore with the mission to make the beautiful practice of textile craft sustainable. We create comfortable, versatile clothing and accessories that are loved around the world.  

At the moment we work with over 7 communities, 5 techniques ranging from blockprinting, to ikat, to jamdani, and create an average of 20 hours of employment with each product sold.

Earlier this year, we brought our 4th generation artisan partner, Kushiram, down to Singapore to conduct blockprinting workshops at the National Gallery. It was his first time out of Singapore, and a great success. We’re looking to bring him down again for a second time this year in November, and for this we need to raise some funds, and so we’re reaching out to you.  

MATTER is built on the concept of connectedness and bringing the world closer together. If you’re a lover of craft, of block printing, of fabrics, culture, provenance, then this is perfect for you. 

Bring your friends and better halves and join in our movement to make where and why something is made matter.

Risks and challenges

Every project could potentially encounter unexpected obstacles (we hope it doesn’t come up, but it happens!). Should we not be able to raise the total funds sufficient to bring Kushiram to Singapore, we will unfortunately have to cancel the workshop and all pledges will be refunded. This means tell your friends about this project now, so it happens!
