Gambier was one of the first crops to be grown along Orchard Road. It was used for medicinal purposes and also as an ingredient in betel nut chewing. From the 1700s, gambier began to be used by the leather industry which led to an increase in its demand. At least 20 gambier plantations were present in Singapore by the time the British arrived in 1819, in areas like Orchard Road, River Valley and Bukit Timah. We selected the pink gambier flower as an embroidery detail for this new drop sleeve cheongsam.
