This shop specializes in goods made from natural materials, such as leather, wood, and paper, using authentic handcraft techniques to challenge the mass manufacturing production.


Starting off with notebooks, the store now has various handcrafts including paper purses (RMB 20), wooden clocks (RMB 120), leather bracelets (RMB 25), and other creative items. Every piece in store, from small scratchpads (RMB 5) to larger photo albums (RMB 150), is unique. Cover embellishments feature calligraphy and other items from Chinese traditional culture. Not merely geared towards the nearby tourist clientele, these products are classic, stylish and well made, and should find favor with residents as well.


The finishing is done artistically making this store ideal for finding gifts.
