"It’s that new energy that drew travel journalist Rita Chan and her partner, Pan Tang, to the neighbourhood. ‘It used to be really weird to come here if you’re a tourist,’ she says. But the out-of-the-way feel of Sham Shui Po’s old wholesale district – much quieter than the market district to the north – appealed to them, so they decided to open a ground-floor studio. The result is Midway, which doubles as a shop as well as a workspace. Chan has curated a selection of handmade products she sourced during her travels. Many items come from Japan, but there are plenty of homegrown products, too, like illustrated plates handmade by Hong Kong painter and ceramicist Tat Tau."
