The Overview

One of the territory's best-known graphic designers, Alan Chan was perhaps among the first to mine China's past for inspiration. In fact, a browse through his store gives you a quick lesson on the history of graphic arts in China. Among the motifs Chan employs for his home wares, stationery, umbrellas, playing cards and tins of tea are calligraphy, newspaper classifieds, historic photos from the Qing dynasty in China and old Hong Kong street scenes, Communist propaganda art, feng shui symbols and even ancient erotica. Look out for their 12-piece pu-er mini dragon–ball tea for a special tea-drinking experience—use one piece per cup and see it bloom in hot water.
