Xie Hui (founder and creative director)
What started as a obsessive pasttime in the bedroom and store room of his home, has led to a fast growing brand that is now based in a work space in a shophouse.
Drawing its initial influences from Tribal Punk and Steampunk, which is a sub-genre of science that features futuristic inventions originating from the 19th century, Stone has a vision — for Stone for Gold to evolve into a lifestyle name inspired by the latest in fashion, architecture and design whilst delving into bolder concepts like Native American Indian influences.
The aim is to produce handcrafted accessories that bear the brazen aesthetics and refined workmanship easily distinguishable to the brand.
