Being a modern woman is so hard. We're constantly giving to everyone else - our family, home and career - yet, we neglect the most important person - ourselves.
"It's so easy to lose a part of ourselves in the daily grind. You can’t pour from an empty cup. Which is why self-care is important.
Self-care is giving to yourself to maintain your well-being physically, mentally and emotionally. Sometimes it’s about consciously making lifestyle decisions, or saying "no", while other times it's about treating ourselves. If you don’t treat yourself, who will?
Buy quality. Buy pretty.
Buy whatever the f*** that makes you happy.
Give yourself a little, so you can give others a lot."
We believe in bettering the lives of women - through thoughtful design, quality products, and supporting causes to empower women.
"We are grateful for the women who came before us and paved the way to make our journey easier. We believe choice=change, and that you and I have the opportunity to do something bigger than ourselves, together. We hope to pay it forward to the women of tomorrow.
The design process starts with us thinking about what we really want to wear right now. Our lingerie are designed by us in Singapore, and handmade by women artisans across Asia. Our commitment is to produce quality pieces that last through the seasons and to reduce our footprint on the environment. We source premium laces and fabrics from wholesalers who have over-ordered fabric from other designers and fabric warehouses to produce our intimates in small-batches. Most of our designs are available in limited quantities which makes them really special.
Shop for change. Join the movement."
OUR DAILY RITUAL
Putting on lingerie is perhaps the most intimate and luxurious act of self care - a certain je ne sais quoi*.
*something (such as an appealing quality) that cannot be adequately described or expressed
"The daily ritual of dressing up is a way to appreciate the beauty in the everyday; a ode to the female form - the body with all its curves and lines - and to embrace the strength in femininity. A celebration of her quiet resilience, grace (with grit) and empathy.
There's just something so precious about pieces worn close to our skin (and hearts). It's the first thing you put on in the morning, and the last thing you take off at night. It should make you look and feel good. We hope you seek inspiration and freedom wearing our handmade pieces mindfully crafted by our artisans using premium handpicked lace fabrics with the modern woman in mind."
