Handmade Hong Kong in DB Brings Together over 90 Local Arts & Crafts Talents in Feb
This market will showcase over 90 of Hong Kong’s brightest indie-crafters, artists, designers and small business owners; each one is handpicked by the team at Handmade Hong Kong.
Handmade Hong Kong in DB is a gathering place for independent artists and crafters. With a belief in the value of handmade goods, the act of creating, and old-fashioned neighbourliness, it brings the community together to build, sustain and inspire each other.
Shoppers can select from a wide collection of unique and original items, and feel a genuine sense of pride that comes from purchasing direct from a local craftsperson or small business owner. Come for Sunday shopping infused with fun and entertainment!
We encourage people of all ages to get involved in creativity! Highlights of the upcoming bazaar include:
AQ Prettiness will hold their signature fashion parade for any little girl wearing one of their beautiful tutus.
Messy Play will be set up near the fountain and is a great way for little ones to get their creative hands on slime, water beads, beans and more – all in a supervised and mess-managed environment!
Vic & Lily will sell their vintage clothing and offer wonderful alternative fashion inspirations to the older girls.
Bez & Oho could well be one of Hong Kong’s most successful indie brands with bags, wallets and accessories all designed with the quintessential HK rice bag theme. Many designers have tried it, but none with as excellent a level of creativity and quality as Bez & Oho. Plus, this company provides job training and experience to the less privileged in Hong Kong.
Not Only Olives, one of Handmade Hong Kong in DB’s most beloved and highly sought-after vendors, will be out in full force, selling deli style blocks of cheese, preserves and oils.
Ashni, with their wares gracing almost every household in DB, is another popular vendor at Handmade Hong Kong in DB. They will sell waterproof swimming bags, outdoor beanbags, picnic mats and more.
