Marquage, which means “making a mark” in French, is a genre of art where Cherin Sim has made a mark since 2009.
Whilst pursuing a Masters of Fine Art from Goldsmith London, Cherin Sim received the Winston Oh Postgraduate Research Scholarship which brought her to pursue leather-working at Scuola del Cuoio, one of the world’s most iconic leather schools in Florence, Italy.
With her passion for Art and Fashion, Cherin turned her knowledge into a career as a bag maker, designer, and painter working with international brands and individuals seeking bespoke pieces. Cherin, who cites Andy Warhol as her favourite artist of all time, works around Pop-Culture and premium materials to produce one-of-a-kind pieces for her clients.
CSXBA The Ultimate Marquage Box
Together with marquage artist Cherin Sim, we have designed a DIY kit with all the tools you’ll need to be your own marquage artist at home.
“The Ultimate Marquage Box” consists of two exclusive leather Alphabet stickers of your choice, a Cherin Sim X Bynd Artisan card holder, one set of alphabet stencils, 40 bottles of paint, pens, liner and brushes, a set of microsuede and vinaigrette, as well as three pattern print-outs as a useful guide for those new to marquage art (but feel free to let your own creativity be your guide).
Stick your masterpiece on the card holder, or on anything from your phone to your handbag, to personalise your favourite things. Who knows, soon your new hobby could become a beloved signature touch on your gifts to friends.
