Nyonya Needlework: Embroidery And Beadwork In The Peranakan World

by Cheah Hwei-F’en

Cheah Hwei-Fe’n examines techniques of embroidery, work with gold thread, lace, and drawn needlework in this profusely illustrated catalogue to accompany an exhibition at the Peranakan Museum, Singapore in 2017. Ms Cheah reveals a complex network of cultural connections. Various types of needlework were practised by women and men, and drew upon techniques from Europe, India, China, and the Malay world. There are many cross-cultural surprises within: gold embroidery derives not only from European military brocade but from ancient Chinese thread techniques of gold strips wrapped around paper. And many other techniques were long practised in remote islands of the Malay Archipelago.
