There’s a new shopping site in town, ladies! Introducing Minkle, a treasure trove filled with proudly Pinoy finds ready for your shopping pleasure. The brainchild of cousins Jenica Siy and Minji Co, the name "Minkle" is actually a combination of Minji and Twinkle (Jenica’s nickname). It was created to make a space where our local crafting community can grow and showcase handmade, original, and affordable items. “All our partners are local brands except for one expat from South Africa (Moi Mois) who is currently based in Manila. We really want to champion entrepreneurs who make an effort in designing or creating their products,” shares the millennial cousins.
The idea initially came to mind because Minji would often lose the business cards of the stores she liked at bazaars. It happens to the best of us, which is a true bummer especially when you want to purchase a specific item from a specific brand. “With Minkle, we do the work for you. So when you browse the site, it will only have brands that we ourselves want to buy from.”
From craft supplies, beauty, jewelry, to home and office accessories, check out a few of our picks from the online store below:
