Coming Home Singapore is a campaign that aims to raise awareness of foster care in Singapore among young working adults and tertiary students, encouraging them to open their hearts and homes to children in need of care. Every Child Deserves A Loving Home, and here at Thinges, we really agree with this cause too! Hence Thinges collaborated with the Coming Home team for the most recent Meet Your Makers event on March 12 2016, Saturday.

And not forgetting the stars of our event – the 5 Makers who were busy selling their handicraft at the event from morning till night.

When moving into their new home, a couple chanced upon Tillandsias (air plants). Impressed by the plants’ durability and flexibility, the couple sculpted the air plants with other elements of nature, including seashells and driftwood. Thus, Crafted Identity was started to share their unique blend of nature with modernism with fellow nature & home-and-decor lovers, advocating sustainable everyday living.
