The 2013 Taipei Giftionery is not only the most prominent gift and stationery trade platform, but also offers a peek into the new black of the industry. This year, 4 exceptional focal points are going to open your eyes and sweep you off your feet.
For starters, oriental aesthetic has always been a great inspiration to gift suppliers. It is safe to say that the spirit of Taiwan fully reflects the simple but sophisticated nature of oriental aesthetic. Cheerful Fashion Goods’ Clavier Hakka collection holds items from the Oil Tung blossom series, NEOPRENE series and the floral emblem series. These high quality items incorporate Taiwan elements and graphic art. To mention a few, the yummy Taiwan food matte, and the (Taiwan bird) T-shirt bags are both fascinating products with a pitch of nostalgia.
High tech gifts that cater to the more practical side of gift giving are now also pretty and artsy. MAGI WAY presents the Saturn products for Tablet PC and mobile phones. Made of beech wood, the holder is considered elegant and heart warming. XUAN design offers wooden mobile phone cases. Engraved with intricate laser print, the graceful case is both a treat to the eyes and the nose.
Recent years, Taiwan has gained recognition and appreciation through international designing awards. Taiwanese companies gradually switches from MIT (Made in Taiwan) to DIT (Designed in Taiwan). Many gift suppliers dedicate themselves to developing their own brands. For example, SOLIS proudly presents backpacks using Taiwan manufactured eco fabric (Polyester made from recycled PET bottles). Tone 40 sells Taiwan designed furniture and home accessories. Of which the cool collecting box and pen holder collections are highly popular.
At the end of the day, eco friendly gifts are still the all time favorite. Ecobook uses recycled paper. This Taiwan designed notebook is both eco friendly and fashionable. It allows A 4 sheets that are only printed on one side to become a part of our life again. Salute to Mother Earth!
Besides the 4 focal points, the nearly 700 booths total also reaches record high. Many foreign countries, including Bhutan, Nepal, and Indonesia, are all setting up country pavilions, adding to the attraction. The Cross Strait Exhibition Area also plans to make an appearance for the fifth year in a role. That would sure turn some heads this year.
