Shapes: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times

Singapore [caption id="attachment_633" align="aligncenter" width="210" caption="Spread the word!"][/caption] Shapes is a collection of fabric tote bags produced in a collaboration between 72 Smalldive and Gift & Take, a social enterprise based in Singapore. These bags are handsewn locally by disadvantaged women who live in a shelter home. The mission of the project is to inculcate basic work skills and thereby enhance the self confidence of these women. Often, inherent commotion in a financial crisis distracts attention from urgent social matters. However we believe that the worst of times can be the best of times if we adhere to our affirmation to create socially sustainable, design oriented business opportunities for a more humane and less unequal society. Shapes Canvass Tote Bags are now available in Singapore at the following retail stores: * The Blackmarket, Jalan Pisang 19 * Path Market, vivo City Level 1 * Mango Tango, Tanglin Mall * Sunflower, 180 Kitchener Road * Zouk Deli, Jiak Kim Street Sales enquiry: / Press enquiry:
