The New Collection: Ivory Nyonya

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The early Peranakans, adopted a practice of incorporating expensive decorative ceramic tiles into the interior and exterior of their houses as a reflection of their extravagant lifestyle and status.

The decorative tiles, usually in floral motifs, would add pastel and vibrant colours into their Victorian architecture houses that reflect the East-West blend of the Straits Chinese. Under the mercy of time and modernization in Singapore, the production of these tiles in Singapore slowly diminishes along with the forgotten Peranakan Heritage, and eventually ceases in production.

This collection explores a modern twist to the classic Peranakan tiles. Now available for order.
