Although this store is called Herbal Heaven, it doesn¡¯t sell any herbs at all. Most of the products are made of cow leather. Many are hand-made. The name ¡®Herbal Heaven¡¯ comes from the idea of ¡®cows eat herb¡¯.
There is a bigger sign above it, written in both Chinese and English.
The shop counts 2 floors.
Decoration-wise, the shelves are black and wooden. This gives a feeling of natural and ancient.
The shop lighting is dim and orange, which lends the articles on display a mysterious look of sorts.
The shop only carries 2 to 3 items in a given design. Since the bags are hand-made, there are differences among items in a collection. No need to worry whether someone else could have the same bag as yours!.
I noted two different kinds of leather bags: those with one layer of leather, and those made of two layers. If you prefer your bags soft and light, choose the former. If you like a more sturdy construction, the latter would be perfect.
Other Leather Products
Personally, I liked the photo frames. They look so special and sturdy. A leather photo frame gives a photo a new look. It can also be a nice decoration item on an empty wall. A 7-inch leather frame costs RMB 55. Prices vary as function of size.
