Exotic Gifts From High Mountains of Tibet

[ From: David Cheng | Published: 2008-12-01 Views: 3705 | Booked times: 62 ]

One of a handful of Tibetan stores in Beijing, Jin Hua Tang offers customers a rare opportunity to shop for exotic gifts from deep Tibet, a place full of mysteries and legends.

Products here make for cute presents for nolvelty-seeking people. Inspired by nice Tibetan music, customers dive in a sea of Tibetan items. There¡¯re thangkas for protection, yak-bone necklaces for good luck, and agate bracelets for good fortune.  Girls in particular love the ethnic-touch bracelets, earrings, and hair accessories.

Even curio-seekers are attracted to the shop. Some of the products are used items purchased from Tibetan families, and are highly collectible. There I saw an exquisitely embroidered thangka. Thanka  is often painted, and seldom embroidered. So a fine thangka embroidery is very hard to find anywhere in the world, even in Beijing. The shop owner wouldn't let go of it without a handsome price.

The shop owner is a Tibetan, and shares his knowledge of his home province generously. He speaks a little English, and will ship his products to every corner of the world.
