In order to complete the study, the Straits-born Chinese is selected as the main focus by investigating the art of beaded embroidery specifically on the Peranakan beaded shoes embarked within the culture. Nowadays, the beaded shoes concern more on geometrical and floral motive such as roses. However, the the motives such as human-like figure and fauna are no longer being made as the completion process is complicated. Despite that, those two motives were quite popular in the past as it portrays their own meanings. Apart from that, the objective of the study is to identify and analyse the motives and colours used on the beaded shoes as well as the influential value of the design.
