The significance of "Made in Hong Kong"


香港製造的意義


近來我們在搜羅古著及配飾時,會特別留意有沒有「Made in Hong Kong」的字樣。身為一個香港的復古品牌,這除了是對香港的一份獨有情懷,也喜愛從它們的細節裡考究箇中的歷史及工藝。


從五十年代起,香港工業正式邁進高峰,直至七十年代更被稱為製造業的黃金年代,當時「香港製造」的輕工業產品出口量龐大,在外國市場佔一重要席位。一件物品經製造並出口外地後,橫越逾半世紀,再越洋過海輾轉回到生產地,著實是一種奇妙的緣份。


香港製造的復古品手工精巧,伴隨著各行業逐漸式微因而亦買少見少,希望大家也會為本地製造由衷地感到驕傲。


Recently, when we are sourcing vintage garments and accessories, we would pay special attention to the presence of label "Made in Hong Kong". As a Hong Kong based vintage brand, besides our unique feelings for Hong Kong, we also love studying their history and the craftsmanship in their details.


From the 1950s onwards, Hong Kong's manufacturing industries have gradually reached their peak. Until the 1970s, Hong Kong has been regarded as the “Golden Age of Manufacturing”. At that time, the export volume of light industrial products "Made in Hong Kong" was huge, playing a vital role in foreign markets. After an item has been manufactured and exported, it is indeed a wonderful journey to travel across the oceans for more than half a century, and then return to its origin.


The vintage products made in Hong Kong are exquisitely handcrafted. Nowadays, as various manufacturing industries in Hong Kong are slowly declining, they become even rarer. We hope everyone will be sincerely proud of the local manufacturing.
