Jennifer Nini is a writer, activist and the founding editor of Eco Warrior Princess - an online platform discussing all things concerning eco-fashion and a green lifestyle. Her journey to sustainable and ethical fashion is one where intention meets mindfulness. As action creates impact, Jennifer and her partner decided to move from city to farm to start an organic food venture while cultivating a permaculture farm and food forest. From what she wears to how she lives - Jennifer Nini makes a conscious decision to actively be a part of the solution.
The origin of the MATTER WRAPS was a confluence of opportunity, timing and the right intention. It began over a conversation in December with Aarika Lee. She approached us wanting to do something grounded on impact, and we talked about the possibility of creating headwraps with batik - which would allow more control with placement prints. We always knew we wanted to explore partnership outside of India, and we had been talking about it for the past year. From there, the dots connected and idea became reality after a WhatsApp video call with Denica, the founder of SukkhaCitta. Connected by a cause, we collaborated together with the intention to make this a purpose-led project above all else.
As a freelance illustrator based in Hong Kong, Andrew Yeung spends most of his time creating and exhibiting his artwork across Asia. A creative before all else; his clothes and illustrations are all a form of self-expression. His wardrobe is a clutter of statement pieces - an amalgam of prints, textures, and colour. With every piece added, he believes that it should be a collective reflection of who he is, and so he exclusively curates vintage products with a design unique to its own.
The clothes we wear are an extension of who we are, and the pieces we invest in are a window into our story. With this spirit in mind, we visited Stephanie at her shophouse apartment to meet the woman who has recently transitioned from a fast fashion fanatic to the founder of Singapore’s leading conscious community.
We began with the intention to inspire consciousness in our everyday, to cultivate a culture that encourages others to uncover where and why something is made. It is our belief that the products we create are built on stories that connect the wearers to the makers. There is a history behind the textiles used, prints woven, styles designed - and intention in it all.

We believe in the value of collaborations, that great things are done by a series of small things brought together. Where there is shared passion, the potential for collaboration is far more valuable than competition - and it is our mission to manifest this in our everyday.View full article →
