River Tales

The River Tales artwork masterfully portrays the timeless beauty of Singapore's landscapes. This captivating piece showcases the iconic Singapore River, offering glimpses of the old landscape that includes the historic Collyer Quay from 1971. Collyer Quay holds a significant place in Singapore's history, having served as a vibrant waterfront entrance that facilitated trade activities and contributed to the city's early growth.

This seamless interplay between the past and present evokes a deep sense of reflection, symbolising Singapore's remarkable journey of progress while cherishing its rich heritage.

Qua lacquerware is characterised by its distinctive rich lustre and enduring shine, which ispainstakingly handmade and polished by our artisans. A unique material, working with natural lacquer requires utmost patience and skills, which is evident in the beautiful sheen of all the finished products.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Qua is privileged to partner ART:DIS to introduce a collection of gift premiums featuring the artwork from ART:DIS’ Arts for Livelihood and Employment (ALIVE) Programme. ART:DIS is dedicated to provide individuals with special needs access to the arts and aims to offer lifelong learning and career opportunities for people with disabilities, as well as equipping them with the skills and confidence that will enable them to find employment and independence.


A young talented artist from ART:DIS' artist-in-training programme, Kenneth specialises in incredibly intricate linework which translates beautifully onto our lacquer products. For this collection, we have used a new method of finishing to highlight the intricacies of his artwork. Laser engraving is firstly done on the prepared lacquer wood, and each product is finished with hand-painting – creating a tactile, pleasurable experience when one handles it. In a fetching contrast of reflective black lacquer and shiny gold paint, we immortalised these icons of our home in the most extraordinary year of 2020, from a unique point of view.
