Nutmeg Flower Drop Sleeve Cheongsam
As gambier depleted the soil in the Orchard Road plantations, they were abandoned and replaced with nutmeg, another prized crop for seasoning and preserving food. Nutmeg orchards soon became a common sight in Orchard road with thousands grown in hopes of profit. Unfortunately a mysterious disease broke out in 1857, and wiped out all the nutmeg orchards in 5 years. With the nutmeg era over, Orchard Road began to develop as a residential hub. We pay tribute to the nutmeg heritage of Orchard road with these embroidered drop sleeve cheongsams.
