Founded on the belief that art transforms lives, The LOOMs Workshops is a social enterprise that provides education and employment for disadvantaged women through the creation and sale of handcrafted homeware and fashion accessories.

The LOOMs Sewing and Crafting Mums are mothers who are fiercely dedicated to improving the lives of their families and breaking the crippling cycle of poverty. The LOOMs Workshops endeavours to equip them with the knowledge and ability to do so through a unique education and training programme:

• The educational aspect that sets The LOOMs Workshops apart is conducted in partnership with training consultancy, TwoFish Pte Ltd. Personal development workshops are designed in order to allow each of the LOOMs Sewing and Crafting Mums to turn their lives around and to sustain this transformation over the long term. Aspects covered in these workshops include: self-improvement, confidence, motivation as well as vital financial management and planning skills.
• The requisite skills training work sessions enable the mothers to learn the techniques necessary for them to produce pieces of handcrafted, artisanal items that you will be happy to wear or use in your home.
• Upon completing the education and training programme, The LOOMs Workshops offers these women a job progression path designed so that these women can continually work towards enabling a greater change in their lives.

At The LOOMs Workshops, every single product is a striking artistic creation handcrafted with love. Every purchase you make contributes to the beautiful tapestry of life that these women are painstakingly weaving for themselves – one hand-sewn product at a time.

The LOOMs Workshops booth will feature an exhibition detailing its social mission, vision and programmes. There will be aprons, coasters and a range of carryall for sale. Bespoke and customized pre-orders will also be accepted.

Faire goers who purchase a tote bag for $1 can also take part in a mini ‘Customise My Tote’ workshop facilitated by The LOOMs Sewing and Crafting Mums.

Ceramic beads, entirely handmade by a group of socially underprivileged women in Cambodia. Individually hand-rolled, painted, glazed and fired twice in gas kilns. Crafted with care, the entire process of making these beads out from clay takes 15 days. Every bead is unique. Perfection lies in their differences.

Claydaysg aims to create minimalist jewelries out from these ceramic beads, spreading positive vibes through meaningful notes which goes along with every handcrafted piece. Every piece is a reminder that each individual is unique and special, just like the beads. Jewelries are made with 14K gold-plated chain and clasp (anti-tarnish), some unique pieces comes with vintage findings and Swarovski crystals too!

Threadapeutic Booth.

Our Philosophy- Every single one of our creations is a result of upcycling. We use raw, leftover materials to creare thoughtful, one-of-a-kind products. From post-event banners to sackcloth bags, we pride ourselves in giving unwanted materials a new lease of life.

Nothing is mass-produced, so no two products are ever identical. We rely on sustainable methods and processes to obtain these raw materials, which are then transformed into eclectic bags, pouches and soft home furnishings by our designers and local craftsman.

Owning a Threadapeutic product means being part of the eco-friendly movement.
