About

The Mini Essentials creates mini bags using 100% biodegradable vegan leather made from Pineapple fibres, sustainably sourced. The brand supports the Pineapple farming communities in rural Philippines, providing an income stream for them. 

The brand started with addressing the problem of bringing bulky bags while encouraging women to evaluate the purpose of every item carried and be more organised. Created for carefree women. 

Comes in different shapes to fit your daily essentials such as phone, cards and money. As a multi-bag set comes in 3, you could customise it in different bag shapes available such as round, square and rectangular. 

The bag is retailing exclusively on the brand's website to keep a competitive pricing while providing an affordable alternative for leather bags' enthusiasts. 

In order to provide more colour options for customisation, we are raising funds to research and develop the leather in custom-made colours such as Beige, Khaki and Nude Pink. The funds including a trip to the rural Philippines and visit the making of the leather. 

We started to plan the business from the past 3 months, followed by the sourcing of the sustainable materials. We are now exploring on the customisation part of the business, hoping to launch in early 2020.

The S$9000 funding goal breaks down into the flight and accommodation to the rural Philippines, the customisation, the shipping of the leather to Singapore and the making of the rewards. 

Risks and challenges

The potential challenge could be a delay in the production of leather in custom-made colours. We would then stick to only one colour (Black) until the customisation is successfully produced.
