• Amongst the Sham Shui Po residents are dedicated artisans and craftsmen, creating handcrafted goods and services in the community. Fortunately, these remaining industries have been passed down by previous generations and preserved by current artisans. Although some of the traditional crafts may soon disappear, their stories tell of the history and transformation within the area. They provide inspiration for the new generation of craftspeople to innovate and re-invent these specialised crafts. Visit a neighbourhood known as ‘The Shopping Destination’ where creative types, amateurs and professionals alike can source all kinds of materials and tools. Take the MTR and make your way to Tai Nan Street. There you will find new and old leather stores, intermixed with lifestyle workshops nearby that have injected new creative energy into this neighbourhood.

     

    Thanks to the artisans, there is the opportunity to choose craft products that are authentic, high-quality, and user-friendly. In today’s commercialised society, the traditional community-based links can only be kept if we appreciate the decades-old traditions and local craft culture that we were once proud of.

     

    深水埗區臥虎藏龍,不少工匠和手工藝家置身其中,服務大眾。有幸的是僅存的手工業承傳好幾代,今天由這一代的業者持續經營著。雖然有部份傳統手工業逃不過結業的命運,但從他們的故事可一窺區內歷史及變遷,也啟發了新一代手藝家重新詮釋,讓工藝更上一層樓。來手作愛好者的購物天堂逛一逛這部分的街區集合了販售各種材料和工具的店,無論業餘愛好者或專業製作人都會找到心頭好。從地鐵站出來走到大南街,你會發現新舊皮具店與為老區注入活力的生活品味小店交錯。

     

    多得工藝家的努力,我們可以找到真正地道、高品質和好用的產品。在今天的商業社會,我們必須珍惜幾十年的傳統及我們曾經引以為傲的本地工藝文化,才能保住社區為本的連繫。
