Directions to Lovely Taiwan Shop
Taiwan is a vibrant dichotomy of intensely progressive technology and the cautiousefforts tp preserve slow-crafted tradition. Although the country is better known for malls and emerging tech, it's a lesser-known secret that Taipei city is rich with bespoke culture. Taiwan's artistic community is alive and flourishing. Taiwanese artists continue traditional crafts, reimagining existing techniques and developing new ones. There are many remarkable ways that the history of Taiwan is woven into its contemporary consumer culture and the The Lovely Taiwan Shop epitomized this perfectly.
Many in search of local textiles will find prints more of the cutesy variety - due to the strong influence of Japanese popular culture. The Lovely Taiwan Shop is a true reflection of Taiwanese culture and art - displaying modern prints and more traditional patterns. The store exhibits each of the items on sale with reverence. The showroom displays over one thousand handmade products - created ny members of aboriginal tribes located throughout the island. Of the more traditional items on display, are usually homemade bags and tailored clothing and accessories, woven from organic fibres and coloured in natural dyes. All sales made in the shop go back to aid the bucolic communities who provided the products and local advocacy groups. The artisans create impressive woodcarvings, one of a kind weavings and other textiles, ceramics, and woven bags. This is definitely a great place for conscious toursits to pick up a work of art and support a noble cause.
The Lovely Taiwan Shop is open from 12PM until 9PM (closed on Mondays) and is located near Zhongshan MRT station, but the brand distributes items to a number of other outlets - including the Taipei SPOT.
