This book is the first of its kind on Straits Chinese beadwork and embroidery. It highlights the uniqueness of beadwork and embroidery in that, unlike porcelain and silver, which have actually been made by mainland. It covers new ground by comparing beadwork fabricated by Straits nonyas with the Indonesian peranakan variety, and includes, in the embroidery section, a fascinating account of silk and sericulture.
