Guangfuhao Hong Kong store opens

Taiwanese handmade canvas bag store, Guangfuhao, has opened its first Hong Kong store.

Guangfuhao was established in 2009, not only to nurture Taiwanese traditional industry and promote the craftsmanship of Taiwanese masters, but also cultivate a new generation to join the industry.

Founder Po Lee said the Guangfuhao Hong Kong store will range a series of canvas bags designed to cater to the lifestyle needs and work purposes of Hong Kong people.

“Hong Kong is an open and international city and people here are multilingual with global vision. International brands have already built their presence in the city. That’s why we decided to open our first store in Hong Kong which is a very important step for us to go global.

“The Taiwan market is small and competitive. If we want to expand our business, we need to enter into the global markets. Hong Kong as the world city offers a perfect foothold for us to market our products and promote our brand.”

Associate director-general of investment promotion Dr Jimmy Chiang said “Hong Kong has a “very dynamic retail industry” with a variety of international brands as well as boutique stores using the city to expand their business.

“The large number of international and Mainland Chinese visitors every year provides huge business opportunities and a global branding leverage, making the city  the best window for overseas retailers to expand their global business.”

Guangfuhao uses pure cotton canvas to produce its bags. All components, from zipper to buckle, from strap to thread, are made in Taiwan.
