Burnt Olives creates lifestyle wares for your home and designs jewelry for effortless pairing.
What drove you to kickstart on your business?
I started making earrings purely based on my love for these accessories. I thought it'll be great to make a pair of earrings whenever I needed one and slowly it turned into a small business.
What is the story behind your brand name?
I started out in F&B working as a chef but I've since left and Burnt Olives has slowly become my creative outlet (hence the somewhat F&B-ish brand name). Plus, I do love the greenish-Olive colour tones so again, hence the brand!
What are some of the main challenges you face in your project?
In the initial phase, trying to figure out how to do everything such as the branding, operations, fulfillment was pretty challenging!
Are there any new / upcoming products or projects we can anticipate?
Yes! For the month of September, we'll be launching our One Tree Planted campaign where every sale made during the month will be equivalent to one tree planted in the Philippines! We'll be kickstarting this campaign with a Printed Plants homeware collection.
What are the 3 words you associate your brand with?
Simple. Affordable. Occasionally quirky.
What would you say sets you apart from other brands?
Most of our jewelry is aimed at effortless pairing and we love the occasional quirkiness such as the appearances of piggy, whom our customers are fondly familiar with. As well as crowd favourite like bronto & friends!
What motivates you to keep doing what you do?
I enjoy the process so that itself is already a big motivation. When customers are excited about new launches - that's a big bonus
