Jeffrey is the 3rd generation owner of Eng Tiang Huat, a shop set up by his grandfather in 1936. From its beginnings as a tailoring shop, Eng Tiang Huat soon became known to the Teochew community for its tapestries and hand-sewn embroideries, as well as its collections of Chinese musical instruments and opera costumes. Since he took over the shop in the 1980s, Jeffrey has been learning about the traditions to his craft and what it means to carry on in his family name.
