Jiang Qiong Er, Shang Xia's artistic director and chief executive, poses during a Chinese tea ceremony in Paris September 11, 2013. Shang Xia, the Chinese-born brand backed by French luxury goods group Hermes, opened its first shop outside its home market in Paris on Wednesday to test appetite among non-Chinese customers for its handcrafted products. The brand is trying to build a business centred on the revival of traditional Chinese crafts such as porcelain, cashmere felt and furniture, that were all but nearly destroyed by China's proletarian Cultural Revolution.
