Soy? Really? It’s not enough that you’ll find all kinds of permutations of it wherever you go in Asia, because here at Ong Shunmugam we’ve found a way to rope it in. Nishita cheongsams are made of soy fabric - a sustainable protein fibre and a by-product of large-scale soy food production.
Sometimes called “vegetable cashmere” for its lush touch, soy fabric is made from the hulls (the skin of the soybean which comes off during processing) left over from producing items like tofu, soybean oil and soy milk. Wet-spinning is the fancy bioengineering process that involves extracting protein liquids from the hulls and then solidifying the liquid to form fibres that are spun into filament and stable fibres.
Green, turquoise and blue knee length cheongsam with short mandarin collar and bodice extending into cap sleeves. Cheongsam has red vintage buttons, colour block paneling in front, center back slit and a concealed zip fastening at the back. Green and blue fabric is soy fibre. Turquoise fabric is koshibo. Fully lined in koshibo. Dry clean.
