We checked out Alibaba's Taobao Maker Festival in Hangzhou and met these dynamic, young entrepreneurs
Love online shopping? You're likely to be familiar with Taobao, China’s biggest consumer-to-consumer e-commerce site.
Just this month, Alibaba Group launched its second Taobao Maker Festival to celebrate the “maker spirit” of these young entrepreneurs.
We were fortunate enough to meet some of the 108 merchants from the commerce-oriented social platform.
Here are some must-buys we've sussed out:
5. Music Canvas
As a nod to environmental protection, Music Canvas has created its own boom box speakers made from 100% biodegradable white corrugated paper. Weighing just 2.1kg, the hardy creation is said to be able to withstand the weight of someone standing on it. According to reviews, its sound quality is pretty impressive too.
