Curated Living – with Ren, MATTER

The Curated Living series asks tastemakers to share their favorite eco shops and brands in Singapore. Everything you buy has a story. Make it a beautiful one!


Ren, founder of MATTER – a conscious fashion brand

MATTER, a beautiful line of travel pants (and soon more!) was created as a way to bridge the gap between makers and buyers. Ren’s mission is to inspire consumers to ask the question: where and why something is made.

Ren works closely with textile artisans in rural communities, helping to provide economic freedom.  She combines age-old traditions with modern design – and the results are stylish, comfy and perfect for our everyday adventures.

Ren shares with us some of her favorites for living a green, curated life in Singapore:

Favorite Healthy Meal in Singapore


No better place for a quick and healthy pick-me-up — crunchy and wholesome salad which we have at MATTER HQ every Tuesdays. Tuna San is a fave along with their recently launched Super Patties filled with superfood goodness.

Favorite Organic or Natural Skincare

REN skincare stocked at House at Dempsey.

Love their clean, simple packaging and straightforward communications. They use only 100% plant and mineral derived actives. Plus I get a silly kick out of it being called Ren as well. 😉

An Eco-shop or Brand in Singapore that You’ve Recently Discovered and Love

Afterglow at Keong Saik

It has amazing raw food, especially the raw chocolate cake, and great ambience! Plus it’s walking distance from the office which is a bonus – carbon free transportation!

thanks Ren! Get inspired:
