616 Julu Lu
Despite appearing in tourist bibles such as Lonely Planet and Frommers, this little boutique specialising in Miao (an ethnic minority from south-west China) clothing, tapestries and jewellery goes largely overlooked by long-term Shanghai residents. Owner Liu Xiaolan hails from Guizhou and makes frequent trips to her home province to stock up on ornate pieces hand-embroidered with gorgeous, intricate designs of flowers and birds.
