Launched at the end of 2014 by parent company Grandluxe, Bynd Artisan is the newest kid on the block to specialise in handmade stationery. This homegrown brand offers an experience that makes the trip worth it. On display are neat stacks of the Ready-made by Bynd collection, with leather and paper products in the form of notebooks, card-holders, greeting cards and the like. We particularly love the eco-friendly Journal Enviro – its pages are made of recycled food pulp from coffee, olives, kiwis and more – and the versatile Quadro Bag, a silky calf leather tote that can be transformed into four styles, including a clutch.
One-of-a-kind notebooks are also available at the custom-made wall, where you get to choose from an overwhelming array of coloured and textured options for clasps, elastic bands, rivets, buttons, wires and covers. Pick your ingredients before a skilled craftsman makes the notebook on the spot in under 30 minutes. If you’ve got more complicated leather- or stationery-related requests, just ask – or you can sign up for the leather goods and paper product-making classes conducted by master craftsman Chong Beng Cheng for a more hands-on experience.
