This longtime Malaysian model icon used to be initially a protracted, directly, Arab-inspired best of simple woven cotton. The Nyonyas, the ladies of the early Peranakan group, progressively remodeled it right into a shapely, embroidered, translucent shirt, mounted with a suite of chained brooches and worn with an identical hand-drawn batik sarong.
