Funny Cultural Logos on T-shirts, Beijing Style

[ From: Maggie Cheung | Published: 2008-02-27 Views: 1869 | Booked times: 59 ]

¡°Serve the People¡±, ¡°No.8 Woundplast¡± ¡­ You are probably left wondering what these words means. Actually they are interesting logos designed in a Beijing shop, and printed on cotton T-shirts.

 

Situated in the depth of Nanluogu Lane, the shop is named ¡°No.8 Woundplast¡± (´´¿ÉÌù8ºÅ). It is decorated in ancient Chinese architectural style, with wooden windows and a wooden door. Inside, the atmosphere is quiet. Women¡¯s t-shirts are displayed on two racks, and men¡¯s and kids¡¯ t-shirts are hung on the walls.

 

A word of caution: you might fall in love on the spot with their funny logos. I did. They are designed by the shop owners and are based on themes like Beijing streets, skyscrapers under construction, names of ancient hutongs (the old Beijing alleyways), and other expressions of Beijing culture.

 

The t-shirt themselves are 100% cotton. The main colors are white, blue, yellow, and black. They are sold in S, M, and L sizes. I chose a deep blue t-shirt with a red star logo, simplicity with personality. The shop also offers paper logos for RMB 1 apiece.

 

Prices for adults¡¯ t-shirts are RMB 90, and for kids RMB 80. The owners don¡¯t like to bargain. Their English is rather limited, but communication is not a big problem.
