While he has delegated all the factory work to his three sons, Mr. Leong still does a lot of the sewing on his own.
Many of his fabrics are imported from Indonesia by a local supplier who only distributes them to a selected number of upholstery businesses in Singapore.
According to Mr. Leong, his business is no longer doing as well as it used to. Having been in the industry since the age of 13, he has witness the drastic shift in the market over the years. It is only a matter of time before larger international brands and online stores wipe out smaller businesses in his trade.
