The Year of the Rabbit is arriving soon! This year, Harbour City invites Mayuka Morimoto, the Japanese Embroidery artist, to create 6 embroidery artworks with a rabbit theme and adopts the design to our limited-edition of “Blooming Bunny Year” Embroidery Lai See Packets. Meanwhile, Harbour City also launches the “Rabbit Ears Knot Double-Sided Lai See Pouch” for charity sales and redemption from 6 to 21 Jan 2023. All proceeds go to Hong Kong Blood Cancer Foundation. The installation “New Year Wishing Pond” will also be set on the second-floor entrance of Ocean Terminal and showcase the embroidery artworks of Mayuka Morimoto. We send our blessings and wish everyone a prosperous Year of the Rabbit!
Harbour City specially invites Mayuka Morimoto, the Japanese Embroidery artist, to create 6 embroidery artworks with a rabbit theme, presenting the imagination of a rabbit in a sea of flowers with each stitch. The Rabbit, which is sometimes lively and energetic, and sometimes well-behaved and quiet, leaps onto the Lai See packets and transforms into the bright and eye-catching embroidery Lai See packets.
Every set of the Lai See packets comes in 6 designs with a total of 18 pieces. It is designed in a circle-shape just like the embroidery hoop and the texture of embroidery is imitated by exquisite hot stamping, embossing and debossing printing technique. Each Lai See packet shows various rabbits in the field and brings it to life. The artistic creation of the embroidery Lai See packets makes it a work of art and displays the unique talent of Mayuka Morimoto, which is of great appreciation and collection value. The back of the Lai See is printed with embroidered embellishments and added blessings quotes with matching designs.
The Lai See pouch launched by Harbour City every year has become a tradition and are practical accessories to highlight your New Year outfit. This year, we launch the “Rabbit Ears Knot Double-Sided Lai See Pouch” to match the theme of our Lai See packets. Lai See Pouch is available in purple & pink and purple & yellow colour combinations, and wavy lines are printed on each side to enhance the sense of depth.
Other than the “Blooming Bunny Year” Embroidery Lai See Packets, Harbour City will display the installation of “New Year Wishing Pond” on the second-floor entrance of Ocean Terminal. The installation will showcase the true embroidery artworks of Mayuka Morimoto, in which visitors can take appreciation of the delicate embroidery crafted by her and get to know the art of craftmanship. We invite everyone come make a wish for good fortune in the coming year.
