The Art Of Tailoring

Yong Peng/Malaysia

In 1952, Mr. Choon Tek Piau 钟德标 learned tailoring at the age of 14 by chance, a friend recommended him to be a trainee in Batu Pahat, but he had no nothing about tailoring. It was a challenging and intense training period, with his redouble efforts of work, he gained a lot during it and eventually became a career he never dreamed of.

His passion motivated Mr. Choon to start his own tailor business " Tong Hong Tailor" 東方服装行 at age of 28 years in his hometown - Yong Peng. He is now successfully in business for 52 years. It's a pity that there are fewer and fewer traditional tailors like this in Asia nowadays.

Mr. Choon is satisfied when his customers are happy wearing clothes that fit properly and are comfortable.

"Happiness is seeing the next generation of my customer's children wearing the clothes that I have made, whicht makes me happy and proud.”
