About the Artist

Carrie Yap is the youngest of the Yap sisters. Born into a family of strong artists, she searched to find a craft that was unique and her own. Good with her hands and patient for meticulous and detailed work, Carrie trained under New York’s Anya Caliendo before launching her own creative practice as YAP SISTER. She has also trained in the UK and Singapore. Her approach integrates traditional couture techniques with cultural touchstones such as silk embroidery and Chinese knots. All of her materials are ethically sourced and every stitch is sewn by hand.
