Located on Guloudongdajie, the shop Yi Bag offers cloth bags in modern and classical styles. Bag maker Xiao X personally creates all the products inside, and she describes the bags as pieces of canvas ¨C "art on fabrics."
The modern bags at Yi Bag use a variety of materials to make, including rope, steel wire, branches, fragments of vases or metal, and even pieces of wood. The result is certainly something you don¡¯t see often Classical bags are more traditional, inspired mostly from ancient Chinese works of art for design and materials. No matter the style, each bag has its own uniqueness and personality.
Prices vary according to the craftsmanship involved and materials used. Generally, they are quite affordable, ranging from RMB 80 to 580. Xiao X, the bag maker, speaks basic English. Simple conversation is no problem.
