We already knew about Summerist.lab last month. In September, we will tap on another home decor local business called Self Supply!
So, instead of explaining to you about my wishlist, I braved myself to slide into the local business Instagram DM and send them few questions.
Self Supply has the tagline of “YOU are your supply,” which aims to bring out the idea of how you can always be good to yourself be the one who can supply yourself everything and anything without needing someone else. They first start with Candle Do It Yourself (DIY) Kit, in which you can enjoy doing your candles (with guidance) at the comfort of your home.
I’ve bought something from there before for our anniversary, and all I can say is their customer service is the bomb and I used that for shooting props too! So, let’s get to know about them more here!
Self Supply is two women-run businesses named Emily and Joee, inspired by everyday surroundings: nature, outfits, daily life, aesthetics and every little thing to run our business.
Tell me more about Self Supply, like the inspiration behind it!
Self Supply was founded in July 2021. We create every candle hand-poured by heart. Each colour represents each scent, giving yourself a fancy but straightforward candle that brings you to a therapeutic moment.
Since we are obsessed with candles so much, and we know we want to be entrepreneurs one day, so here’s Self Supply. We started with bringing our DIY Kit since we constantly struggled to find the best materials to make our candles in Malaysia. After a lot of trial and error, we finally make perfect candles. We understand how sad and disappointed you are when making failed candles, so we launch this DIY Kit to bring joy, especially during the lockdown. You can enjoy making things that will make your day!
We also just launched ready-made candles, and of course, many fun things are coming very soon!
