Spotlighting some of our favourite local artists and homegrown brands, keep scrolling for our pick of the best Hong Kong souvenirs and farewell gifts.
Richard Crosbie Art, From $400
Add a splash of colour to your wall — but make it Hong Kong. Vibrant, dynamic and pulsing with life, Richard Crosbie’s love for the city truly shines through his art. Originally from South Wales, the product designer-turned-artist has lived in Hong Kong for over 25 years, sharing superbly rendered prints of his hand-drawn and painted artworks at affordable prices. From the Star Ferry to ding dings and red taxis, we love that many of his pieces feature our beloved modes of Hong Kong transport — why not try and complete the whole set?
Ciaolink, “Farewell my Hong Kong” series, From $720
For the friend that can never get enough of those Hong Kong sights, Ciaolink’s “Farewell my Hong Kong” series allows you to keep a part of the city (including the memories you made there!) with you wherever life takes you. Capturing views high up from The Peak down to bustling Percival Street, the handmade artworks from the collection feature iconic Hong Kong scenes, each with intricate embossed details. As part of Ciaolink’s move towards sustainability, the brand promises to donate 1 percent of its sales to 1% for the Planet. What’s more, Ciaolink uses carbon offset during transportation and recycled cardboard for its packaging!
