About Ink Jade Studio


Wearable Culture for a Contemporary Wardrobe

Ink Jade majored in Japanese at university and fell in love with kimonos and other traditional Japanese handicrafts while in Japan. However, she realized one day that she knew more about other cultures than her own and decided to start exploring traditional Chinese arts and crafts. She discovered hanfu (traditional Han Chinese dress) while surfing online and longed for exquisite handmade accessories rooted in Chinese tradition. Hence she decided to start Ink Jade Studio, the first shop in Singapore dedicated to accessories inspired by Chinese culture so that people are able to buy unique handmade accessories locally.

About Ink Jade

Ink Jade lives in Singapore surrounded by too many crafts supplies/tools as well as various musical instruments all of which she plays really badly. She dreams of moving to a mountain to become a hermit, grow her own medicinal herbs/vegetables and raise her own dairy goats, chickens and English angora rabbits. At the moment, she is trying to adjust to the twenty-first century.
