Backstory to the 打酱油 embroidery: In China it’s everyday business to pick up soy sauce from your local store. Doing so, a man got interviewed by Chinese TV about a pop singer’s sex scandal. His dismissive response: “What’s that got to do with me? I’m just here to buy soy sauce”. The phrase went viral and 打酱油 (get soy sauce) became sarcastic slang for “mind your own business / I don’t care.”

100% Virgin Wool - made in Europe, embroidered in Germany.

Shanghai Tofu is a Chinese-inspired fashion and accessory label founded this fall by the Berlin based sisters Lina and Inga Zangers. Each piece of the collection provides wearable design objects with a mischievous twist bridging gender and generations. The style of the pieces is shaped by Chinese and French elements that merge together into a surprising friendship. Selected accessories produced in Europe are the result of the sisters gathered inspiration from trips through China and France.

With the „FORBIDDEN TASSEL EARRING” and the “JE NE SOY QUOI BERET”, the Zangers sisters start their first foray into the fashion scene. Using high-quality materials such as silver and gold as well as certified virgin wool, Shanghai Tofu delivers timeless cosmopolite slow fashion bites instead of fashion fast food.
