Following our Peranakan Beadwork on Vans collection, We have decided to gear things up and gave ourselves another challenge.
This time round we chose to work on the Sacai Nike Nylon , using 11/0 size beads to create a traditional Kasut Manik design of birds and flower motifs.
Flowers like food is being featured so pervasively in our everyday life and it also best define the Peranakan's love for bright colors and elaborate designs. Flowers are seen in all aspect of Nonya and Baba's life. It carries various meaning often representing the desire to possess beautiful and positive human traits.
Birds, on the other hand often represents happiness, joyfulness ad good luck.
