Blue Nankeen Exhibition Hall
Blue Nankeen Exhibition Hall's name is a bit misleading. There's a display upstairs explaining how nankeen cloth is starched and hand-dyed a rich shade of indigo, but this is primarily a place to pick up beautiful textiles, clothing, and accessories. Nankeen, also known as blue calico, originates from Nanjing, China's one-time capital (nanjing means “southern capital”). You’ll find it used here in mandarin-collar shirts for both men and women, pint-size tea dresses for little girls, soft-soled slip-on shoes, hats, and bags. If you're handy with a sewing machine, you can even buy fabric by the meter. No discounts.
