02 WEAVING STORIES
As the official timepiece for the Women Entrepreneur Awards 2017, Corum Singapore is continuing in this line of support by bringing on J.J. Chuan as its first Friend of Corum Singapore. Chuan is the creator of Musiccloth, handwoven from the magnetic tape found in discarded cassette and video tapes. The innovative “cloth” is now available in the libraries of Material Connexion – a materials consultancy in New Work – deemed an “idea worth spreading” at a TEDx event last year, and is part of Red Dot 21’s World of Design. Chuan herself has made totes, notebooks, scarves and even dresses with it, which she sells in local lifestyle shops like Kapok, Supermama and Books Actually through her brand Rehyphen.
