FRESHLY PRESSED SOCKS
Socks have gotten a raw deal in your closet. Often they come in a staple of muted, boring colours with a missing or worn out pair.
Freshly Pressed Socks is founded by a group of friends that love fun, well designed and quality socks but didn’t want to overpay for them. We wanted to create a sock brand with an original point of view and a compelling brand story that we could share with the world.
At Freshly Pressed, we believe that socks are like your secret identity. It’s that small detail and part of your outfit that reveals your hidden side to the world when called upon, a tinge of design and pattern with a shot of fresh colour when you sit down or take off your shoes.
All our socks are specially crafted with small details that reflect a unique character and is inspired by our love for art, culture, design. Each pair of socks is named after a character with a story that is documented online and on a character card that comes with each pair of socks. You could say that our socks are a little bit like wearable action figures :)
Freshly Pressed Socks are designed by the team in Singapore and exclusive to the brand. We manufacture them with a blend of high quality combed cotton in combination with polyester and spandex that is carefully sourced and made in Korea.

CHILDREN’S WEAR AND TOY
Happy Bikes balance bikes are an ideal first bike for toddlers and young children 2.5-y-o to 6-y-o with a minimum height of 90 cm to around 110 cm.
The young children learn the fundamentals of balance and steering by simply pushing themselves along and stopping with their feet.
Our son, William, is the reason, motivation and inspiration behind Kinder Dreams! Back in July 2015, when 2 years old William was struggling with his toilet training, I turned to the Internet for advice. While researching online, I came across the Thermobaby Kiddyloo Toilet Trainer, a product well-loved by parents all over the world, and which I hoped would ease the process of toilet training for William.
However, purchasing the Kiddyloo turned out to be more difficult than I’d imagined! The manufacturer informed me that the product was unavailable in Singapore, and I had to pay exorbitant shipping fees to bring my first one in. The Kiddyloo turned out to be a dream for toilet training William, and I began to feel that it was a pity such a useful and interesting product is out of reach to so many Singaporean parents.
It was then that Kinder Dreams was conceived, to realise our hope of introducing tried-and-tested and parents-approved products to discerning parents who only want the best for their children. Kinder Dreams is committed to bringing in amazing and unique products guaranteed to delight your child and ease your journey through parenthood.
Maison Q is the story of a mama who loves to play dress up with her kids. But as much as she did, the thought of her little ones growing out of their clothes at the speed of light nibbled at her. Surely there is a clever way to get more mileage out of the pieces in her children's wardrobes? Eight Pinterest boards, dozens of sketches and many a prototype later, the idea of reversible kids wear was born. Two designs in one dress? A shirt that can be worn two ways? In many, many, fun prints? Oh yes!
And so Maison Q, a Singapore-based brand was born in 2015, where ‘Q’ in the brand name is derived from the root word ‘quaintrelle’. This, according to Middle English dictionaries refers to an elegant woman who advocates a life of passion. Because, how else should life be lived?
At Maison Q, maximising the life of our apparels is at the heart of what we do. To achieve this goal, we work closely with our family-owned workshop to ensure that our products showcase an excellent level of quality. Having our own workshop also gives us full control of the production process and an outstanding advantage — the freedom to create. With a team of experienced artisans, we transform ideas into reality. And because the collection have been designed and made by us, they are one-of-a-kind and cannot be found anywhere else.
Oribel is a combination of “Ori” from Original and “bel” from Belle meaning beauty. The brand is created with a belief that original ideas and aesthetics belong together. Here at Oribel, we understand that while parenthood is an exciting journey, it is daunting at the same time. Through our original and innovative products, we aim to deliver solutions to make parenting days more enjoyable.
