Our #1 main product: Chinese Brocade Satin fabrics. It has been produced in southern part of China since ancient times. Skillful textile workers interweave mixed color silk and artificial threads to form exquisite patterns. The resulting fabric has a beautiful pattern that is neither the expensive embroidery, nor the cheap and simple print. Brocade satin fabric is very colorful; normally it has 3 to 7 different colors in one design. The pretty colors were dyed into the threads. Because it's not pure silk, brocade fabric is stronger and has much better shape retention, yet it's still very shiny, smooth and relatively soft. In many practical aspects, it's even better than pure silk fabric. Thus, this beautiful piece of fabric is perfect for Do-It-Yourself lovers! Application of this fabric includes almost everything you can think of, from clothing to home decoration.

Our #2 main product: Cheongsam Dress. Cheongsam dress (qipao) is the native dress of the Manchu nationality - one of the 56 nationalities in China. The Manchurians lived in north-eastern China and their history traces back almost 3,000 years. Gaining quick popularity in China, the qi pao soon became the traditional costume for Chinese women. The Cantonese called the qi pao "cheongsam," a term literally meaning "long dress." Like a magical flower with beauty that never fades, the traditional Chinese cheongsam continues to hold great appeal to women eastern or western till this day. The high-necked, closed-collar cheongsam, with a loose chest and fitting waist, is one of the most versatile costumes in the world. It can be long or short, some with full, medium, short or even no sleeves at all - to suit different occasions, weather and individual tastes. What serves as a worthy testament to the beauty of the cheongsam is, however, it does not require the wearer to pep up the look with accessories like scarves and belts. Designed to show off the natural softness of the female form, it also creates the illusion of slender legs. The overall picture: practical, yet sexy.

Our #3 main product: Dudou. For thousands of years, Chinese women and kids have been wearing this traditional underwear called "Du Dou," which literally means "belly cover." Dudou is a lingerie that's cut very simple - just a square or rhomboidal piece of silk with ribbons that tie around the neck and the back. This Chinese version of corset is making a comeback in recent years. People all over the world are wearing it as fashion, not only as an underwear, but also outdoors as a top. The dudou that was a hidden part of women's attire in the ancient times has become the daily wear of the bold and vanguard young ladies in summer.

Other wonderful products include: Pet Dress, Military Camouflage Fabrics, etc. Check back often for new products!
