For many of us, online shopping has become the norm, especially since we are staying home a lot more these days. One of our favourite apps to shop from? Taobao, of course! Not only are the choices aplenty and prices reasonable, but there is also a growing range of products that exhibit creativity.
Did you know that the mega e-commerce platform actually hosts an annual exhibition, called Taobao Maker Festival? It’s a yearly fair that brings together some of the up-and-coming young creators on Taobao who put their best and most innovative products on display.
This year’s edition, themed ‘The Lost Treasure’, will be taking place from July 17 to 25 in Shanghai.
