On the east side of Wangfujing Street lies a shop named Jianhua Fur and Leather. With a history of more than 80 years, the shop mainly carries high quality fur coats and leather jackets.
Entering the shop, I found out it has a spacious shopping area. The key section features the "Snowflake" leather jackets. A middle-aged female shop assistant told me that "Snowflake" is China's Time-honored Brand, and has won the Good Quality Product Award many times.
A black leather jacket caught my eye. It was in a simple design, but the workmanship looked superb, and the leather very delicate. I touched it, and it felt very soft. The price tag for it was RMB 2,580.
Other items on display include leather handbags, purses and wallets, and Tang suits (traditional Chinese attire). Customers buying the goods could enjoy up to 20 percent discount. The shop also offers made-to-order service and fur coat processing service.
