Sometimes it takes just one well-chosen accessory to breathe life into an outfit you've owned for years. The scarves and necklaces below can freshen clothes from casual jeans to that classy dress you reserve for nights on the town. The hand-painted scarf, featuring an Asian woman in a butterfly-filled garden, is nothing less than wearable art.

For Kids

Dolls don't get much cuter than Jade, a Chinese girl in a green silk jacket trimmed with red to complement her hair bows. Will she be your daughter's new love - or perhaps the pair of Christmas dolls with matching holiday accessories? Musical kids enjoy dancing about the house with our Chinese tambourine and sequined silk fans.
