About The Brand
Dear Samfu makes nostalgic clothing for contemporary women. The brand gives Grandma’s wardrobe classics a modern spin, bringing back Grandma’s values of thoughtful consumption and sustainability into our wardrobes.
The Samfu is Grandma’s favourite - it is a breezy shirt (sam, 衫) and trouser (fu, 裤) pairing usually made out of the same fabric. Designed for maximum comfort for the tropical heat, ease of movement and modesty, the Samfu was a popular everyday style in Singapore in the 1950-60s.
Ethically made using deadstock fabric and produced in small batches, every style is consciously created and designed to last through the seasons. Each Dear Samfu garment is a re-interpretation of the Samfu story, letting every Samfu girl cultivate a beautiful relationship with her piece in the long run.
