Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
The Peranakan is a mixture of Chinese and Malay culture. The story of Peranakan tells how Chinese migrants settled and started their own families with the local Malays. People often say that the Peranakans are more Chinese than Chinese because they fully preserved the Chinese custom.
To keep the Peranakan spirit alive for future generations, the Baba Nyonya Heritage Museum in Malacca, intend to revive the Batik Sarong as part of the unique Peranakan traditions. The design objective of this project is to promote the "Peranakan Batik Sarong" as an exquisite Peranakan heritage collector's item.
