"To withstand the highs and endure the lows of an unforgettable road trip."
I founded Bittersweet Supply Co. (formerly known as Bittersweet Creatives) in October 2016 as a tiny design studio in my last year of high school. The plan was to make it big within a matter of months and party like a rock star.
Things didn't exactly work out that way.
My lack of motivation paired with my lack of business skills and zero willingness to learn at the time meant that by December; Bittersweet was nothing more than a side-hobby where I would occasionally post my doodles on Instagram for my 40-something followers.
What I did pick up during this period though, was a journey of self-discovery. It was the year I got my license and my very first car; an $800, 1999 Toyota Camry (or as I liked to call it, the S.S Camry). Some of my best memories are still from those few months, where I would wake up before dawn on a Saturday, pack a few snack bars and just head out on the road. No maps, just North, South, East or West and I would keep going only until I wanted to turn back.
A good road trip needs planning, but also a bit of spontaneity.
Crisp mornings, heavy eyelids, dew on the windscreen, a perfect playlist.
The long road, this one's for you.
All of the factories contracted within the Bittersweet supply chain are socially and ethically compliant.
This ensures that all products are manufactured in a fair way, workers are paid a fair wage, human rights are respected, factories are safe, and communities impacted by sourcing are treated fairly and respectfully, ethical sourcing enforces social and environmental responsibility.
