christmas goodies – repurposed & reborn

Straight out of Singapore!

Handmade, one-of-a-kind funkiness! Our friends at Maki Squarepatch make funky, playful stuff out of found materials from thrift shops, flea markets and closets. Hand-crafted and designed by sisters Enqi and Xin, these Christmas items possess a unique DIY attitude and flavor. The siblings create their product line in their homeland, Singapore, a locale not known for self-expression of any kind. (the two items in the middle above are iPod pouches)
