      Story about the "Peranakan Story" Prints:
      The design is inspired by symbols found in many facets of the Peranakan Culture. Reflecting wealth and good fortune, these symbols can be found on throughout the history of Peranakan on fabrics, china wares, wood furniture, jewelries, etc. As a brand that promotes meaningful local narratives through patterns and colors, Onlewo draws on the rich Peranakan design heritage to create this series of patterns, which are in return a tribute to the original creativity of the Peranakan culture.
