Repost from The Business Times:
In October 2014, Bynd Artisan couldn't get a single mall to offer it retail space. So its first atelier was located at the Chan family’s factory in Boon Lay. Today, plans to take the brand to China and the Middle East are underway, even as its presence in Singapore continues to grow, with two retail stores slated to open in Ngee Ann City and Raffles City by next month. [From The Peak Singapore, July 2017] (more…)
To celebrate Bynd Artisan's latest store opening at Takashimaya S.C. , Marquage Artist Cherin Sim has specially painted six limited edition vintage pieces, each unique in its own way.
Drawing inspiration from a historic nose art that is symbolic and vital in communicating psychological warfare back in World War II, Cherin utilises imported Angelus leather paint to embellish the iconic Flying Tigers Shark-Face military insignia onto three Compact Wallets and three Long Wallets in Gold, Silver and Red, each collection featuring one piece per colour.
With each piece being uniquely different, she ingeniously transforms these wallets into statement pieces through a bold choice of colours that stand out against the stark hue of black, further accentuating every piece’s individuality.
Head down to Bynd Artisan at Takashimaya S.C. , B1-02A to browse this collection today! (more…)
Personalisation is more than just making the item uniquely yours or someone else's, it is the motivation and thought behind every choice made that makes the item or gift even more special.
Many times, we receive gifts without knowing how much effort has gone into the gift. Here at Bynd Artisan, every customer that walks in has a story to tell. Be it to commemorate a special occasion, reward oneself or gift their loved ones, every story is memorable and we enjoy listening to customers from all walks of life share about the significance behind every gift.

Together with &Larry, we are thrilled to collaborate with PIN Prestige for its 4th anniversary gift. Translated as the freedom to break boundaries and venture beyond norms, 肆 also takes on the chinese pronounciation of "four". The ingenious idea is expressed as a graffiti print on the &Larry A4 Folder - embrace your creativity and let your imagination take flight.
