    Shoot me if there is already a thread on this - I just can't find it.

    Wasn't there a site based in the UK that sells very nice patterned silk linings? If anyone knows of this site, could you let me know.

    Don't really know that web site, but surely, in Beijing it would be possible to commission these things, no? Otherwise, I do remember seeing a jacked lined with Hermès scarves...

    On the contrary, availability of any products in China is less than one might expect.

    That is to say, quality products often have to be specially imported.

    Everything imported in China is ridiculously expensive. I was recently looking at furnitures and the prices are easily 4 times the MSRP prices in Europe. The artisan class was wiped out by warfares and the cultural revolution, and the country is left with only mass produced domestic goods and imports.

    Your best bet is to take a trip to HK and spend an afternoon in SSP.

    True artisans died out. [​IMG]

    Maybe a long shot, but wouldn't a certain bespoke tie maker from Thailand with access to his on silk weaving shop not be an interesting person to address for this?
