About Us

We are passionate about making. We appreciate the craft involved in the design and exploration of beautiful and unique materials to creating interesting things.

We want to make items that people want. By focusing on the making process, with an emphasis on the right materials, we want our products to connect with people.

We believe in collaborations. By working with other talented and like minded people, more interesting ideas can take off. Creating win-win situations would enable our partners and workers to fulfill their aspirations.

We like being fair and responsible. We will be sound employers and choose ethical partners in our work.

We are sincere. We are genuine in our intentions and will put our hearts into making this initiative work.

Pipedreams

The hundred clouds project (pipedreams) was borne out of a whimsical notion of wanting to play around and make use of unwanted, ‘out-of-fashion’ and perhaps ‘ugly’ fabrics, transforming them through experimentation, exploration, design and the making process.

That is our goal. An alchemy of sorts. The clouds could be playful or serious; abstract or representational; colourful or monochromatic – the objective was to experiment with different sewing techniques and explore the possibilities of forms suggested by the print, texture and weave of the fabric.

Currently we are at 56/100 cloud cushions, always awaiting new and exciting adventures.
