The Intan is an award winning private Peranakan home museum in Singapore.

Morph is teaming up with The Intan for the latest Intan Atelier drop that celebrates the rich colorful aesthetic workmanship found in Peranakan clothing and jewellery!

The collection’s faceplates take its inspiration from various Peranakan elements. Namely the Nyonya Embroidered Kebaya, Intan jewellery, Peranakan porcelain ware and manek beaded shoes.

The accompanying bead colors have been carefully curated to match the faceplates, very much like how the Peranakan kebaya complements the Batik Sarong.
 
Package includes:
  • Morph Earphones with Bluetooth neckband
  • Liquorice Black earphone base module color
  • Set of 4 authentic peranakan faceplate designs by The Intan
  • Specially curated set of beads colors to complement the faceplates
 
Kebaya
Traditionally ‘Peranakan Kebaya’ is created using cotton voile and embroidered silk. Kebaya embroideries are the painstakingly hand sewn with combination cutwork. The intricate embroidery work usually takes weeks and months to complete.

Jewellery
Peranakan jewelry is intricately designed. However arguably one of the most distinct element of Straits Chinese design are the rose cut diamonds (known as Intan in the Malay language). It’s primitive random and raw ‘rose cut’ remains the main attraction for lovers of Peranakan precious stones!

Peranakan Porcelain
Peranakan porcelain is decorated in colourful rose enamel which symbolise marital harmony and longevity. Peranakan Porcelain ware was actually commissioned and made in China for the Peranakan in the Straits Settlements.

Peranakan Bead Slippers
The glass Peranakan cut beads found on Peranakan Beaded Slippers (or manek potong) were sewn onto a gridded fabric and actuallyi stretched over a wooden frame. One bead to one stitch, the design once completed on a shoe vamp, is sent completed by a shovemaker to be finished into final beaded slipper or kasut manek.
