Empowering through preserving and modernizing traditional skills and arts
sōsu is pronounced as source; the source of hope.
Sosu works alongside small communities and social enterprises. We empower them through the work of their hands, and support the heritage preservation. We aim to raise international awareness to the beauty of heritage crafts.
The pieces reflect everyone's journey. At sōsu, we create lifestyle pieces that are dignified and skillfully handcrafted to make a statement—celebrating every milestone of our lives and theirs.

Our origin story
"I was lucky to have the opportunity to work in our neighbouring countries—Myanmar and The Philippines. I spent my free time to connect with people in the provinces. I have met people who were passionate for their heritage and traditional crafts and shed light upon me that these countries are rich in their heritage, culture and their know-hows. Being a fortunate Singaporean, I wanted to share this meaningful experiences to our fellow locals while helping the friends I have made overseas."
