The Peak (Singapore) - - Watcher News -

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.
