SPD Artisan Collab

SPD is a local charity in Singapore set up to help people with disabilities of all ages to maximise their potential and integrate them into mainstream society.

The SPD Bookbindery, established in 1986, is one of the longest-standing programmes under SPD's Sheltered Workshop that provides employment opportunities for persons with disabilities.

The bookbindery provides a platform for our craftspeople to hone skills in perfecting the art of book-making, book restoration and crafts-making. Each craftsman and woman brings his or her unique skill set to the team, creating artisanal journals and storing old treasured books, giving them a new else of life.

Building their legacy, the bookbinders paved the way for new artisans to be developed, forming a new arm, the SPD Artisan Collab. The new outfit now sees a succession of younger persons with disabilities being trained in leather-crafting, stitching together lifestyle products perfect as gifts for friends, loved ones, and corporate partners.

A finishing touch of initials or names hot-stamped on every creation adds individuality and elegance to these socially empowering gifts.

You can also order their products directly from their eShop at https://shop.spd.org.sg/. They offer a great selection of products. Please do support them!
