Mondays can be merde. A lot of people like to use the term “It’s not Mondays you hate, it’s your job” or something along those lines.

Particularly because of the article that featured TEMPER as one of their eco-friendly brands on BBC; what an honor! We couldn’t be doing these things without a wonderful team and workshop here in Phnom Penh, amazing customers around the globe, a fabulous support team from sea to shining sea, and an amazing business partner (here’s lookin’ at you Jesse!), and the wonderful back story of our collection.

Take a peek HERE, if you’re keen!
