Of Heritage, Ideals & Significance
Inspired by the traditional Southeast Asian batik motifs, Kebaya Bleu™ is a heritage mark meticulously created to reflect Singapore’s deep historical roots as part of the vast Malay Archipelago.
Traditionally made by a stamping technique or by a hand-drawn method known as "canting", the motifs and patterns are given a modern reinterpretation to reflect our forward-looking aspirations and ideals.
The floral motifs and botanical patterns intricately lined by dots are symbolic of the many distinct cultures being weaved as one. How different ethnicities coalesced into a single Singaporean identity is nothing short of a modern day cultural marvel.
This marks the birth of Kebaya Bleu™.
Porcelain is a medium where colour variation is a natural occurring feature of reactive, speckled, matte and cobalt-blue glazed finishing. Irregularities in glaze and texture should be celebrated as a mark of the artist's hand. Therefore, each piece is unique and has a handcrafted element to it.
