Restoring the Human Touch
"Man is essentially a toolmaker, and a woman's or man’s ability to create life’s necessities with his or her own hands has been critical in creating our civilization."
An excerpt from "Making a Living in Crafts: Everything You Need to Know to Build Your Business" (2006) by Donald A. Clark
Most of life's necessities are produced at the command of a button. Our post-modern tools are equipped with elaborate mechanisms to relieve us from the need for toil and labour, whilst eliminating the inconsistencies in quality and risks of human error. With the advancement of automation technology in this age, we gradually begin to dismiss the art of making things by hand.
At Marvelous Works, we revolutionise the subtly fading tradition of craftsmanship to restore the the human touch that makes every product delicately unique.
Handcrafted to Your Needs
"Being like everybody is same as being nobody."
Our workmanship entails communication - so as to customise your product to suit your unique lifestyle needs and complement your unequaled personality traits.
Intricately handcrafted by our expert artisans using materials that are carefully procured from across the globe, we deliver premium quality crafts - simply designed to embrace the palm of your hands.
Giving Back to the Society
"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day.Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."
Originated from Thackeray Ritchie's (1837–1919) novel, Mrs. Dymond (1885)
Many social enterprises give out "fishes" to the needy at an unsustainable pace, often heavily dependent on public donations.
The very reason Marvelous Works exists goes beyond restoring the human touch in terms of craftsmanship. We believe in the life-changing impact of imparting skills and carving out a viable career for the disadvantaged and underprivileged to sustain their livelihood independently.
Presently, we are at an experimental phase to establish a self-sufficient platform so as to accommodate this mission. We aim to launch our business full-blast by the end of 2018 with our first intake of expert craftsmen with a transformed label - from "disadvantaged and underprivileged" to prized and masterful artisans.
