Guilin Stone is formed in the unique geographic and climatic conditions. Those stones are solid in texture, bright in color, unique in form. They are decorative and can serve as a reminder of the beauty and elegance of the scenery to be found in and around the mountains and waterways for which Guilin is famous.

Embroidered balls are romantic keepsakes. In ancient China, maidens threw embroidered balls at their Prince Charming. Whoever caught the ball would marry the maiden.

Ranging from animals, wall decorations to plates and pails, hand-woven crafts are decorative as well as functional. Marble ware, jade ware, bamboo and woodcarvings, paper umbrellas, embroidery, hand-painted folding screens and knit ware, are all ideal souvenirs.

Gold, silver, jade and pearl wares such as necklaces, rings, earrings, pendants, broaches, and bracelets are dainty in design with strong ethnic features.
