City selects 16 unique products as gifts

Sixteen local products were voted the best gifts from the city Hangzhou and the top prize went to a small piece of soap placed on a celadon tray, reminiscent of the imperial kiln of the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279) which had its capital in todays Hangzhou.

The soap has three fragrances to choose from Longjing tea, sweet-scented osmanthus, and honey.

Other prize-winning gift products include an incense-emitting bamboo lamp and a pendant in the shape of ruyi, a carved talisman representing good fortune.

We selected the winners from more than 140 products based on the criteria that they must be characteristic of Hangzhou, useful and a good reminder of the city, said Song Jianming, vice president of the China Academy of Arts and a judge on the panel.
