The design is inspired by symbols found in many facets of the Peranakan culture. Reflecting wealth and good fortune, these symbols are seen throughout the history of Peranakan on fabrics, china wares, furniture, jewellery and decors. As a brand that celebrates meaningful local narratives through patterns and colors, Onlewo draws on rich Peranakan design heritage for this inspiration. Sieving though old black and white Peranakan family photographs, courtesy of the Singapore Peranakan Museum, we discovered many significant cultural elements like the Kamcheng (covered vessel), Kasuk Manit (beaded sandals) and peacock images, and express them afresh and respectfully into this contemporary pattern. ‘Peranakan Story’ is an endearing portrait of Singapore’s cultural treasure and beauty.
An Onlewo silk scarf is a meaningful Singapore corporate gift that tells many a Singapore story through its pattern. When you need a pattern that speaks the story of your organisation, we welcome you to join us on a creative journey to craft a most memorable and happy corporate gift design with inspiration from Singapore culture and heritage.
