Handmade has a new home
Thinges is a marketplace for handmade and creative goods. We are a group of makers and conscious consumers who believe extraordinary unique handmade products deserve a home (simply because WE LOVE HANDMADE!). Great handmade products isn’t about the price. It’s about improving your life, making you happy, or even both. Our goal is to connect the incredible makers of the world with their most passionate consumers. We are where design enthusiasts can be the first to discover the newest indie brands and budding creatives.
Thinges was incepted in early 2015, as the team could not find a platform that adequately serves the artisanal and handmade community in Singapore and Asia at large. Asia has a deep-seated tradition for artisanal crafts and the Maker Movement is starting to catch on. Established platforms mostly support North American and European communities and were not suited to the Asian context, while existing platforms in the region often focus on cheap mass-manufactured products. Thus Thinges was founded as a platform for handcrafted and artisanal goods with particular emphasis on the concept of ‘cause over cost’.
Let Thinges widen your eyes and discover all the awesome handmade products of the region. Be it previously unknown traditional crafters or bohemian new-age makers, through Thinges, you can find out about their story and have the opportunity to own a piece of their work. Shop for bespoke gifts, unique handmade jewellery, independent label clothing, artisanal ornaments and furniture, unavailable elsewhere in the world.
