• THE CHUCK MANIK •

    

Being born in a Peranakan Family has enriched my life in many ways, therefore to contribute and give back to this phenomenal culture, we decided to use our hands and skills to create something for all Peranakans, non-Peranakans, locals and foreigners who appreciate intricate wearable art.

We 
pride ourselves with our traditional crafts and skills. They are beautiful but more often than not, very time consuming, difficult to learn, labour intensive and non-replaceable with any form of automated process thus making it impossible for mass production.

Spreading the beauty of Peranakan Culture to a wider spectrum of people uniquely our way.

We present to you our latest collection, 
"The Chuck Manik”.

The name derives from the combination of “Converse Chuck Taylor” and “Kasut Manik” which means Beaded Shoes in Malay.

In this collection, there are two pairs of sneakers named after famous districts in Singapore that is still heavily influenced with the Peranakan culture.

 

They are Everton & Emerald.

  

Each pair of the Chuck Manik is crafted with delicate love, requiring umpteen hours to complete.

Continuing our love for symbolism in Peranakan Culture using birds and flowers with a touch of embroidery as the border around it.

Creating footwear with a 
story to tell and a culture to share.
