Beaded slippers or beaded shoes called 'Manek Eh' in Hokkien were handmade with much skill and patience. The delicate beadworks of the traditional beaded slipper epitomizes Nyonya artistry, as these beautiful shoes would often have been created by their wearer herself. Each pair would have taken months to complete and involved the stitching and stringing of faceted glass beads from Bohemia (precent-day Czech Republic). In modern times, premium glass beads from Japan are preferred. 

Traditional manak Eh design often has european floral subjects like roses, daisy, with colours influenced by Baba Nyonya porcelain and batik sarongs.
