The latest Enamel Pin Collection from TiredCity is now available! The collection revolves around the unique cultural characteristics of urban areas as it introduces you to some of the most familiar sights, such as the tangled cables and wires that surround the streets, the loudspeakers that broadcast the morning news, the rows of apartment buildings next to the train tracks, and especially the "Fabulous Four" vehicles that make up the unique vibe of Vietnam.

Enamel Pins are available both online and offline, so let TiredCity's small but powerful gift help you tell stories about the place where you were born and raised!

Created during the social distancing period, "9x Niem Nho" (90s Memories) is a collection of memories that artist Sin wrote to "those who were once children." The collection is seen from the perspective of a boy in his "growing up" years, and it contains items that once defined Sin's world and that of his 90s friends.

The items range from his mother's market bag to his father's polka dot coffee cup, from the days of eagerly tearing off calendar pages to the days of huddling next to adults and watching them burn paper offerings. All are recreated in a nostalgic, multi-colored tone of a bygone era.

Summer is a season of joy, nostalgia, and farewells. If you find yourself in these images, let "9x Niem Nho" | TiredCity x Sin takes you back to your childhood with the most beautiful memories we shared together!
