Handmade fishnets and circular knitted t-shirts are ‘made in Hong Kong’ through to this day

Makers of Hong Kong: A Monthly Sharing

Engage in a conversation with a textile expert and leave with a renewed perspective on the making and makers of Hong Kong! The one-hour session will be conducted through Facebook live and will include a Q&A session.

‘Made in Hong Kong’ is a distinguishing emblem of quality and history that has carried different meanings over the generations. A turnover of display in The D. H.
