Our Humble Beginnings

Our Humble Beginnings

Thank you for your interest in our little gifting grocer.

How did we get started? 

Due to the current pandemic, we felt a lot of old school businesses and artisans are being left out to fend for themselves especially during the circuit breaker as most of them were unable convert to an online store immediately. With no prior tech and web knowledge its even more difficult for Uncles and Aunties to come online. Hence Atlas Handcrafted was born, the initial plan was to help local business staged and photographed their food for e-commerce site. Soon we realised we are on to something, we are two superbly well traveled individuals with flair for all things finest. From our worldly exposure, we decided to try something new, to push the boundary of gifting as well as being the tastemakers of great brands, artisans and products.
