Latin Market is a good brand for umbrellas and scarves. It has a presence in many large shopping malls in Beijing.
Their specialties are tiny umbrellas and beautifully embroidered ones. Their models are double folding, triple folding, and quintuple folding. The double-folded umbrellas are decorated with hand-made embroideries and are made in cotton. All of them insure UV protection. Their prices range from RMB 198 to RMB 900.
The shop also offers silk and woolen scarves. In summer, they sell silk scarves including semi-transparent ones and silky smooth ones. The former is worn closes to skin, and is printed with patterns. The latter offers printed patterns on the satin (shiny) side.
Their silk scarves are made in Hangzhou, the ¡®capital of silk¡¯ in China. Silk products manufactured in Hangzhou are said to be of a better quality than those produced in other cities Prices range from RMB 300 to RMB 400. The woolen scarves come out on the shelves in fall and winter. The main patterns are checkers alternating warm colors. Prices range from RMB 500 to RMB 900.
