Founder and designer of Cocoonese. Loves Art & Craft. Exploring & Enjoying life in the sunny island of Singapore
As a teenager, I would spend hours in a craft store. Like a child in a candy store, I would get lost in the myriad of craft material and tools. With needles and scissors in hand, I grew up around fabrics, beads, cardboard, glue and other craft materials. Perhaps, this IS how passion and interest looks like!
There are a lot of things I want to do in my lifetime. I want to seize every moment to do things that I make me happy and proud of. Born and raised in Taiwan, , I decided to leave my life in Taiwan behind, and set off on a new journey alone to Singapore in 2010 where I worked in the media industry. I was deeply drawn to the Nanyang culture the very moment I set foot in this country. As a result, I decided to stay. I gained a lot of insight and experienced different life experiences, but …I came to realise that I had gradually lost my original enthusiasm and ambition with the passing years of employment.
Although I may not have a background in fashion design or entrepreneurial knowledge, but being me, having grown up around self-taught craftsmanship; coupled with the support and help of my friends, I started to build my very own handmade bag kingdom of my dreams – one step at a time!
I am quite engrossed with the process of bag design and production. Material selection for each bag could require at least 2 weeks, before I get into design and production, and finally bag testing. The creation of each bag can take up to 1 to 2 months. I am always excited to share new creations and connect with you. This is the kind of satisfaction that I seek, this motivates me immensely to create the next batch of designs.
There are indeed many challenges in the running of a brand, but…it is also exceptionally exciting! I enjoy the process of growing with my brand, and I am full of boundless hope for the future of COCOONESE!
