Through this partnership, artisans will have an on-ground presence at The Linc, which in turn, will also boost its online presence on The Artisans Haven....

Raj Mahal, famous for his YouTube videos on Ayy-Men, a premiere talk show on being a modern man, was the on-ground anchor for the exhibition.

From just 30 tenants in May last year, The Artisans Haven has seen a 300% increase to over 120 online tenants, together with increasing corporate partnerships and media support.


Seeing the fine quality of artisanal products, The Artisans Haven wants to showcase their labour of love and hopes for increasing public support to help them sustain their living in current difficult times...

As part of its CSR, The Linc KL has a similar mission to support not only artisans and small businesses, but also single parents and sustainable projects that include urban or rooftop farming and textile waste recycling.

It strives to educate the young generation on biodiversity, through education and conservation programs such as its current Chrysalis project that encourages people to ‘Adopt a Caterpillar and Host Plant.’

The Linc KL also supports an association for medically challenged children, called Tender Hearts where the children are given free space during the weekends to cook and bake - the management would then buy their products and donate to other organisations.

Locals including craftsmen, housewives and artisans with special skills are invited to set up their businesses at The Linc KL, initially, at no cost....

With like-minded partners in The Artisans Haven and The Linc KL, there are strong factors for success; it is hoped that the public will lend their support for this worthwhile project to also help enhance the tradition of ‘homemade is heartmade.’
