Jinxiu Chaindeng carries embroidery mainly. Embroidery is a traditional Chinese artwork involving embroidering beautiful patterns on silk or clothes. Handmade embroideries are much more expensive than machine-made ones.
The quality of the embroidery patterns offered here is quite good. The material is very soft, and patterns are very diaphanous.
The shop owner, a young man, is born in America. He speaks English fluently. He came back to China in 1997, and engaged in exporting embroidery he had designed himself. His work combines modern Western culture and Chinese traditional culture perfectly, and finds a very popular echo overseas. It was even featured in a Japanese economic newspaper. Many Japanese tourists come to shop here.
Prices for embroidered Chinese style clothes range from RMB 200 to RMB 450. Prices for embroidered bags range from RMB 20 to RMB300. Excellent value for money. The same products sold overseas would cost 5 to 7 more
