Caring for the Community




As the coronavirus pandemic continues to evolve, those on the front line are more important than ever. We are all tremendously grateful to the people serving on the frontlines of COVID-19 in essential services.


Our healthcare workers, cleaners, first responders, grocery store clerks, gas station attendants, postal employees, and delivery drivers have been operating under unprecedented pressure during the global crisis. Thank you for all that you’re doing, for your courage and your selflessness. We cannot thank you enough for your noble contributions and sacrifices.


To those working in these industries and many more, the team at Design Orchard says - thank you. We owe you our gratitude and all the support we can.



In a time when the principle of community bears crucial to protecting those who need it most, we highlight some of our local labels volunteering to provide relief to vulnerable members of society. Read on to find out how our brands are making a difference through these challenging times!





Revealing Ying the Label’s exclusive Tweely and Brooches, just in time for you to drop mom a colourful surprise this Mother’s Day! 🌈


As part of its Pay-It-Forward initiative, they have partnered with Care for the Elderly Foundation, Singapore, to help provide masks for their patients and/or caregivers. What’s more, for every purchase made from Ying the Label’s ‘Tunes From My Heart’ Collection, $10 will be donated to the foundation to help the elderly.




Accessories brand KMANA has suspended all international shipping, and moved to home working. Continuing to support their artisans who are working from their home, KMANA are producing lining masks in partnership with the Bali Life Foundation, and helping to distribute them within the community. Since a lot of the physical fundraising KMANA typically does for Bali Life has been postponed, they are providing extra financial support to the Foundation that helps them provide food, and other necessities for their local women.




For the launch of its 7th capsule collection - Seasons, PINKSALT has committed to donate 5% of their sales to The Courage Fund which helps to support vulnerable individuals and families affected by COVID-19.


Their latest collection mirrors seasonal hues seen in transitory colours from Spring to Winter, with prints capturing evolving weather patterns, horizons and landscapes.






Joining the fight against COVID-19, Minor Miracles has launched a range of colourful printed masks by sewing any excess fabric which may be available from their collection. All profits will be donated to a COVID-19 fund to support those affected by the pandemic.


They're only made to order, so give their amazing team some time to make your masks with love!

The Courage Fund is set up by Singapore Community Chest to help to support vulnerable individuals and families affected by COVID-19.


Gift a heart and #shopforgood from [in]trigue's Heart Collection - 50% of their sales from the Heart Collection will be donated to The Courage Fund by Community Chest Singapore.








It looks like we're going to be wearing face masks for a while, which is all the more reason to find one that you like. For something with a little more flair, our favourite local brand, Photo Phactory just launched a collection of cloth face masks featuring their beautiful signature patterns.


Constructed using two layers of cotton and linen fabric, these masks are adjustable, washable, and reusable. For each mask sold, Photo Phactory will donate one mask to our migrant workers.





Akosée has adopted a dorm of migrant workers and will help out with some of their basic needs for the next month. You can be a part of this too by getting in touch with @itsrainingraincoats or by supporting a small local business and knowing that any purchases made on their site during April and May, they will donate 10% of revenue towards this cause.
