Good things are worth waiting for, this shop is for those with great patience as most items are either made to order or unique pieces which are added at random times of the year. So do come back once in a while and if it is fated that the item should belong to you, it will be here for you.

I don’t like meaningless consumption, so everything sold here would be accompanied by a write-up of its historical origin and why it was modified to the current form it is here. Trust me, even though the object more than fulfills its role as a brilliant piece of decoration or accessory, it makes an even more interesting conversation topic at events. So do take the time to learn the stories behind it!

Shipping outside of Singapore and gift wrap options available can be added separately. I ship worldwide. If you wish to save the environment, I am more than happy to meet up in person for the delivery in town.

Accessories

Pseudo Kingfisher Silk Thread Flower

Kingfisher feather accessories and textiles in Chinese culture goes back to over 2,000 years ago. While there is nothing that can completely replicate the colours of the kingfisher feathers to date, the dyed silk threads with a history far longer than kingfisher feathers act as good and more sustainable substitutes.

The Silk Thread Flower technique was indigenous to the Hakka community and is one of the intangible cultural heritage crafts of the Chinese.

Customizable to other types of accessories on request (such as brooch). You can learn more about the ancient Chinese’s obsessions with feathers here: https://hanfugirl.blog/2019/10/24/raiment-of-rainbows-and-feathers/ Free shipping worldwide.

Hanfugirls’ Collectibles

Specially produced affordable collectibles that are educational and fun. All profits will go towards supporting upcoming productions and content creations (venue rental, content research, artist fee for musicians and dancers, costume purchase, props and set creation etc.). Arts and heritage patronage are essential to the development and sustainability of any practitioner and industry. The ancient Tang dynasty artists, literatis and courtesans support each other by producing wonderful literary works or artistic works for courtesans to perform to, and courtesans act as their publicists by introducing them to the influential and powerful.

Order by 15 Dec 2019, to get it by Jan 2020.

Tang Courtesan party calendar [For Shipping within Singapore]

The courtesans were the superstar celebrities of their time. They are very familiar with the importance of thanking their admirers, so anyone who professes their admiration to them through a humble giving of $25 will be gifted with a special Tang party calendar especially crafted by the courtesans of Swallow Pavilion. It tells you which days you could walk past the Entertainment House to get a whiff of them.

Due to time needed to wait for the monsoon wind to blow past Southeast Asia before our goods could arrive, please allow a waiting period of 2-3 weeks for your item to arrive at your door.

Item only includes 13 pieces of double-sided print calendar in an envelope and not the display stand or accessories. You may enquire additional costs separately if you wish to upgrade to the stands.
