Established in the year 2010, Pestle & Mortar Clothing isn’t just about what you wear, but also a projection of our personal lifestyle, culture and homeland. Our designs pay homage to the things we find familiar whilst growing up in South East Asia. This approach makes it even more personal for us; our geography, through our eyes. The most ordinary and mundane things sometimes defines who we really are, but more importantly, where we come from.
Using apparel as a canvas for stories, we aim to spark conversations through our designs and ultimately show the world what Southeast Asia is capable of.
The name is derived from the background of the team comprising mostly of Southeast Asians. A pestle and mortar can be found in pretty much every asian household and is a representation of us. Very much like the ingredients used with a pestle and mortar this signifies each of our experiences and identities all fused together into 1 beautiful paste like substance, our products. “Pride Of Southeast Asia”
