Wanyi shop carries folk handicraft from Northern China. On display, typical articles from various provinces: clay figurines from the Shanxi province, embroidered shoes made by the Yunnan ethnic minority, facial make-up in the Beijing opera style, etc. The shop offers over ten sorts of typical products.

 

Among them, the most popular is a kind of childrens clothes called Bai Jia Yi. Made by the senior citizens of a village in the Shandong Province, they are made in fabric leftovers which have macerated in some tincture. In olden times in China, people believed that clothes made of macerated fabric would bless their children. This manufacturing tradition has ben kept alive because the tincture bath makes such fabric beautiful and comfortable.

 

The shop is visited by many travelers and Beijing residents who come here especially for these children clothes. Some of them dont even have children: they just buy the clothes as a beautiful souvenir.

 

Prices range from RMB 60 to RMB 120.

 

What I appreciated:

Strong folksy flavor
