Following in her father's footsteps at age 13, Ho Sau-Mei began training in the art of carving mahjong tiles by hand. Now in her mid-60s, Ho carries on her family legacy in the same shop where she grew up, while most of the industry has turned to factory-made, mass-produced plastic tiles. With only a few mahjong sifus (masters) left in Hong Kong and no successors to the trade, mahjong carving may very well disappear with her generation.



    *Free standard local shipping via regular post.

    Please allow 3 - 5 business days for shipping.

    Additional charges apply for international shipping and express shipping options.

    All postcards are wrapped in waterproof sleeves and packed in signature Hong Kong-style envelopes along with a personalized message :)
