Why we love the KIN Wallet

 

If you’re itching for a new wallet to hold your cards, notes and coins, look no further than the KIN Wallet. 2000% funded in less than 2 weeks, KIN is the world’s first wallet to separate your cash and coins for you.

“We’ve all experienced the pains of holding up the queue while fumbling with change. And thus, KIN was born – an elegant solution to this everyday dilemma to bring greater ease and convenience to our lives. Everything – yes, everything – goes in from the top. Coins are easily retrieved from the pocket on the side. But the wallet holds more than just coins – keys, memory cards, you name it, KIN’s got it.”

KIN was conceptualised by Cheryl Ho, Lim Li Xue, and Ng Ai Ling and hit Kickstarter on November 1. Go ahead and check it out, you’ll love it!

“Once upon a time, magical creatures were locked in games, anime, pokeballs and apparels. Our dream is to unlock all of these magical creatures so that you can cuddle them in your sleep and let them help you tide over the bad times.”

The Tiny Rabbit Hole is sure to warm your heart. It’s a collaborative project between web designer Angie Ng and software engineer Phong Yew Tong. Angie: “While studying in Australia, I noticed how creative the Australians are with their handmade markets held every month. Everyone has interesting ideas, and I decided to adopt one of my own. I picked up a crochet hook and started making magical creatures amigurumi.” Phong Yew Tong on the other hand loves building and designing things, gaming and Pokemon. “I jump in to release all these cute magical creatures from their virtual and flat 2D space into our real world.”

Throughout the time she embarked on amigurumi, Angie has created a variety of crochet characters. Some are fuzzy and totally adorable, others magical and mystical. Each design has its own charm and fits nicely into the palm of your hand.

Tutu the Bat, Chibi Pikachu, Resting Suicune  and Baabaa the lamb are just some of the charming soft creatures available in the online shop. Follow the Tiny Rabbit Hole on Facebook to find out about new creations or sign up for one of their workshops.

In the Shower with XUBE

Just launched on Kickstarter, the XUBE is a sleek solution to your shower routine annoyances. Realizing that people carry a lot of grooming products, NUS undergrads Julia Lee, Yang Ran and Lee Hsiao Fong address that need with a refillable, stickable, stackable and packable dispenser.

“Now you can stop buying tons of travel-sized versions of your shampoos, and replace your disposable bottles with the XUBE. The dispenser features 4 bottles in a unibody design to hold your personal soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion and holds enough product for an estimated 20 days, assuming 1 shower a day. Simply fill XUBE with your chosen products, then bring it anywhere to unroll and mount on any smooth wall. And when it’s time to go, roll it back up for easy packing. You can take XUBE anywhere, even on board a plane, as it adheres to airline carry-on regulations.”

Puff to Plump the Pillow

Dreamers by day and designers by night, Jacelyn, John and Sue crave sleep … and catnaps, and shuteye and siestas and a trip to the land of nod on the train home. “It thus seemed like a natural progression for us to tackle the issue of obtaining comfort on demand, while of course, addressing the stuff that people don’t like to talk about … like drooling.”

The Aubergine Pillow is soft and hugable, compact and packable and looks downright comfortable for napping at your desk, on the train, in the park or while you wait at the airport.

Here is more information from the Kickstarter page:

  • Nobody wants to run short of breath. It is an inflatable pillow that plumps up generously in just a puff.
  • Nobody wants to taste stale saliva. Puffing 2 inches away from the spout initiates the Bernoulli effect, using the surrounding air to multiply the volume of your breath. It’s a wind-wind!
  • Nobody wants a bad fit. Perfect size for maximum hug-ability, so nest yourself on our mount-ever-rest.
  • Nobody should break their necks. Sensual contours and a well-placed dimple to cradle your head and support your neck. Good support not only eliminates the all-too-familiar head lolling and bobbing, but goes beyond that by stabilising your head for optimal on-the-go sleeping posture.
  • Nobody wants drool stains. Dark coloured fabrics for maximum discretion and an instant dozing environment. Perfectly machine washable.
  • Nobody should be weighed down by a pillow. This sleeping pill deflates fast, rolls snug and compacts small.

LIMBS by Omitir Concepts

limb-event

Commit Omitir Concepts to memory as you’re adding their handsome accesories to your Christmas wish list. Founded in 2012 by Darren Loke and Bryan Teo, their approach to leather and all products is inspired by “its narrative and enduring principles. All patterns are based on logic and form, giving precedence to the product’s texture and details.”

Their latest collection – LIMBS – comprises a series of leather wares that have a certain something and sit neatly in the intersection of stylish and functional. The design is clean and minimal, rendered in an eye-catching finish akin to the intrinsic character of the human skin.

“The collection heralds the marvel of the human body, with each piece influenced by the actions and gestures of our daily lives, with an ergonomic approach in mind. LIMBS intends to articulate the movement of the body without restriction, by means of introducing carefully produced pieces that instil functionality and mobility.”

Be among the first to explore (and pre-order) the collection exclusively at Supplies & Co. between now and 12 November.
