Helping village artisans to make decent living and allow them to stay in their villages preserving local heritage skills handed down over generations as part of their cultural heritage is what we promote at Paisley Things.
We also promote the idea of “pulang kampung” or going back to village with a new hope, opportunity, and confidence. We help them to preserve and revive traditional skills enabling them to make a decent income in their villages and be close to their families.
Lastly, we promote eco-friendly artisans by showing them that what used to be considered as waste materials in the past, we can now make into a new purposeful product. We help them reduce urban waste, create home based industry with sustainable income opportunities and produce unique high quality handmade aesthetic products.
