In a world proliferated by industrialised products, we want to honour the traditions that come from centuries of making things by hand. Our grandmothers stitched and created beautiful heirloom pieces and today, we long for slower times, when love was expressed and embedded in objects passed down from mother to daughter, father to son.
Using hand intensive techniques with simple tools allows us to train and work with artisans, who, for the lack of capital, would not otherwise be able to enter the premium market of high design goods. Thus, to us, handmade is a means of providing fair and sustainable work for such individuals and communities.
At the heart of EDEN + ELIE is a mission to celebrate and empower individuals with diverse abilities, by providing fair and sustainable work opportunities to communities in need. We currently partner with local organisations to train and employ adults with autism as skilled artisans to produce the meticulously handcrafted jewelry that we design.

As a little girl, I spent most of my days in the care of my maternal grandmother, my mama. I followed her everywhere like a shadow. I remember sitting amongst my grandaunts and mama, intrigued by their lively gossip in Baba Malay and secretly pleased by the fact that they had allowed me to listen in on their ‘inner circle' gossip.
