"I dream of a world where urbanites can appreciate the craftsmanship and painstaking effort that goes behind each piece of handcraft product. A world where these handmade crafts can be branded and brought to international recognition in a global marketplace."

The Incidental Gift Shop

Our story began in 2012 when we opened our 1st hotel, The Ranee, a 24-room luxury boutique hotel in the heart of Kuching city. “Ranee” was the title for the Queen consort of the White Rajah of Sarawak, during the time of British rule of Sarawak (1841-1946). 

At The Ranee stood a humble shelf of postcards in support towards the Sarawak School for Intellectually Disabled Children. The selection of cards soon morphed into a bigger selection of gift items, and before we knew it we had a burgeoning gift shop, The Ranee Artisan Gallery, supporting various charities, NGOs and independent artisans of Sarawak.

Rosemarie was also responsible for the revival of the historic ex-boarding house for St.Mary’s Girl’s School, The Marian Boutique Lodging House. This black and white accomodation on Wayang Street now boasts the 2nd Ranee Artisan Gallery, carrying products from over 40 budding artisan and communities.
