1. What do you do?
Saught creates jewellery from the metal of war remnants to support sustainable development in post-conflict countries. We partner with the largest demining organisations in Cambodia (CMAC and Golden West Humanitarian Foundation), which supply safely obtained scrap metal to our partner NGO workshops Fileo and Rajana. Our design partners (i.e. Temasek Polytechnic School of Design for our inaugural collection) co-create their designs alongside our partner artisans.
2. What do you wear while in Cambodia?
We wear: a traditional kroma (Cambodian woven scarf) + sunnies to block out dust on our tuktuk rides; shirt+chinos/fisherman pants; nuab sandals.
3. Your differing roles in the day & night
2 lawyers + 1 banker by day, 3 saught advocates by night
4. 3 Things That Inspire You
Travel & People
5. 3 of your Favorite Materials
Metal, Paper, People (it’s always about the people).
6. The Dream Collection – who would you want to work with ?
Our dream collection would be of epic proportions, as a massive collaboration with a series of designs in one collection with:
a) NGOs and Organisations doing work in post-conflict countries: e.g. DiscoverTheJourney, Invisible Children, United Nations, Bridges to Justice
b) Designers: a selected designer from each major city of the world
…with each design created with our various Saught partner NGO workshops across various post-conflict countries (Laos, East Timor, Cambodia, Vietnam, Sri Lanka)
7. Your Biggest Fear
Sometimes, the fear of the Unknown creeps in… but remembering how Providence has always led the way nips it in the bud.
8. What time do you wake up on a daily basis
7:45 am, but we usually sleep at 2-3 am.
