Opened in 1954, Wah Ngai is best known as the birth place of the red, white and blue bag. The founder Lee Wah started hand-making these nylon carryalls in the 1960s. Cheap but durable, these bags became extremely popular, especially with those who wanted to bring gifts back to relatives in Mainland China. Still widely seen throughout the city, these bags have gone on to become an icon of Hong Kong culture. Today, you can pick up this classic bag in different sizes in Sham Shui Po at Wah Ngai Canvas (Address: 22 Yen Chow Street, Tel: +852 2748 7311), Tsuen Kee Canvas (Address: 219 Yee Kuk Street, Tel: +852 2729 1054) or Sun Kee Canvas (Address: 37 Yen Chow Street, Tel: +852 2393 5073).
