‘Home’ has been sang and written about endlessly, but the meaning of home remains weaved with personal sentiments.
Whether or not your rendition of ‘Home’ is one that belts out like Michael Bublé or beats to the drum of Phillip Phillips, the universal meaning of home is a space, be it mentally or physically, where one is free to be happy and healthy enough for growth to happen. Beyond our most basic needs that are food, water, and shelter, the pebble to start the avalanche of growth is a sense of belonging.
In this robust, full consumer society that romanticises mobility, we hear less of ‘small’ or ‘slow’ or ‘few’, but when we put our most memorable and fulfilling experiences under the reflective glass, those are possibly the descriptions that are strongest in a narrative.
Last September, we decided to grow our roots and strengthen our focus on creating. After all, being a creative is about… well, you know, creating.
So! With a heavy heart but high hopes, we have moved away from the co-working office and studio in Art Printing Works, Bangsar to a new space in Taman Mayang Jaya. With a home to call our own, it is also more conducive to curate an all-rounding experience for one and all to be exposed to what we do.
‘What we do’ is another mystery to some, we would wager. Some say we do everything that has to do with letterpress (false) or business stationery that are just really pretty (false, it isn’t just really pretty) or even wedding stationery to make sure that all guests you invited would turn up on your big day (false, we cannot guarantee that but it makes a compelling invitation).
Over the last two operating years, we are immensely grateful for the media to have acknowledged our effort and catapulted us into the frontier of cop SIRIM, buatan Malaysia local brands. At times, the buzz almost obfuscate the fact that we are merely a team of artisan print craft purveyors, which are bleeding from our fingertips to be making things for you!
‘What we do’ has been and always will be a ‘WIP’ because that is how it rolls with belonging to the creatives. It is also an inevitable journey for wanting to build something that will last.
Come 2016, we will open doors to our home for you to enjoy an all-rounding experience of what we do best.
We intend to realise so much more of our dreams with artisan print craft and so excited for you to be a part of our growing journey.
The road, is home.
Happy new year!
