Working with people based on why you’re doing what you do is a powerful catalyst for any working relationship. It also means that a diversity of opinions are always on the table, which makes for a better end product.


We thought that given everything that has happened over the last few months, we wanted to give you a final opportunity to meet the people behind the brand. Closing the distance, virtually. Taking time to give thanks to those that have grown MATTER to what is has become today.

Qistina – our digital marketing executive whose email you’ve thoroughly enjoyed over the last 13 months would be leaving us and will be open to new opportunities in the future. Write to her, she is amazing.

Jolynn – our merchandising executive who started out interning with us and has joined us full time over the last 14 months would be leaving us and will be open to new opportunities in the future. Write to her, she is amazing.

May Ee – our product creative, who has designed and curated so many of the products you’ve fallen in love with the last 3 years have. Write to her, she is amazing.

Devonne – our eCommerce manager who has been with us over the last 4 years will be folded into our larger Banyan Tree family, a journey that begin 18 months ago. She will continue to be your point of contact from here on out.

For those of you that have visited us at Boutiques, you would be familiar with Mr. Chua – our ops person who will continue to stay on ensuring that all orders will arrive at our warehouse and products be dispatched to you in a timely fashion.
