JIA ZHUANG

The functionalities of homes are constantly merged in contemporary cities. While we celebrate the diversity of space utilization, the elegance and ceremonial sense of life itself was neglected.
In China, Dowry is locally called “JIA ZHUANG”. URBANCRAFT’s signature “JIAZHUANG” dressing table was inspired by Chinese traditional jewelry box, which was the most important piece of all dowries.
With the beautiful meaning of dowry, “JIA ZHUANG” wishes to give every woman the most exquisite corner to get ready for their daily lives.
