Every scraggly haired, asymmetrical fringed, geeky-glasses framed, chino rolled hipster in town loves dumplings. Loves them. In fact, at 10pm on a Friday night, there are more skinny-jean wearing kids in Chinatown than there are Chinese people. They line the smell-soaked laneways in droves: a 6 pack of boutique beer in one hand, and a rolled cigarette in the other. They are the kings and queens of dumpling-town.
This dumpling dynasty could use some pointers from Wu&Wu's Dumpling Dynasty. They'll get along just peachy, as both have a fond affection towards retro stylings and unique cultures. Want to hem your mini to a micro-mini? Stitch it up with the Sewing Kit's needle and multicoloured thread. Lost your measuring cups to make your vegan-gluten-free-carob-hash-brownies? Lucky you have the handy dandy Baking Kit. Has your quiff fallen flat? It's the Pigtail Kit to the rescue. Need to see your face in your pointy taupe leather brogues? Use that Shoe Shining Kit you have stored in your massively oversized bag. Forget which alleyway you hid your $10 shiraz down? Just make yourself another drink with the Happy Hour Kit. Can't find your dignity? Try using the Explorer Kit's tiny torch and compass.
There are also new editions of Dumpling Dynasty wallets and eco-friendly bags, all illustrated by Fiona Hewitt. You can see some of her slightly-less-kitschy artwork here.
There are couple of places that you can get your greedy mitts on Dumpling Dynasty gifts- remogeneralstore.com is just one of them. For a full array of available goodies, please visit wuandwu.com.
