Busy bag maker Xiao X describes her work as "art on fabrics." Made from cloth, the bags are classified as either modern or classic.

The modern bags use everything from rope, steel wire, branches, fragments of vases and metal to pieces of wood, while the classic bags take inspiration from ancient Chinese works of art. Needless to say, each bag is individual and unique, and pricing is according to the craftsmanship involved and materials used.

Nonetheless, owning one of these works of art won't break the bank, as prices range from RMB 80 to 580-totally affordable!
