Welcome to Upmart!
A member of raiSE, Singapore Centre for Social Enterprise.
Our mission is to be a platform for like-minded individuals who love to create, sew, handcraft and upcycle.
These individuals include special needs, low income, homemakers and hobbyists.
Products are handmade with love and we are passionate about waste reduction and sustainability.
We work with and donate 15% of our gross sales revenue to charity.
This year, we are giving to Children's Aid Society and Focus on the Family Singapore.
The idea of starting this social enterprise came about when our founder, Diana Ong received
a few old crystal chandeliers to raise funds for 2 children's homes.
She made several ornaments and jewellery pieces such as necklaces and earrings by
adding new Swarovski crystals to the old crystals, thus upcycling the chandelier
parts into wearable and attractive products.
With the support of friends and customers,
we are constantly developing and expanding our catalogue of handmade products.
Since the registration of the business on 8 Nov 2019,
we have over 100 products now, including both new and upcycled products.
Upcycled parts will be indicated in the descriptive details of the product.
Our constant challenge is to find an equilibrium between economic value and social value;
to strike a balance of profitability and social impact.
Thank you for visiting our website and we look forward to your support.
We welcome collaborations, feedback and suggestions!
