Chinese New Year Red Envelope

Item code: 039-1852

Chinese New Year 2016 falls on February 8th and will be celebrated as the Year of the Red Fire Monkey.

A favourite and staple tradition in Chinese culture, the Chinese New Year Red Envelope is a money gift traditionally given to children and unmarried adults by parents, grandparents and aunties and uncles.

The Aspinal of London Chinese New Year Red Envelope is handmade from the finest soft and supple berry red Italian calf leather with a gold foil framed border to the reverse and lined in signature red suede and shimmering cream grosgrain. For that extra personal touch, the envelope can be personalised with up to four gold foil or blind de-bossed initials in the bottom right hand corner of the envelope.

The red colour of the envelope represents energy, good fortune and good luck and is often decorated in gold Chinese characters that represent happiness and wealth.

Besides being a well loved family tradition, companies often present red envelopes to their customers to thank them for their business and to employees for end of year bonuses. You will also often see red enveloped being fed to the mouth of the Chinese Lion during lion dances as this is meant to bring good luck and is considered as an appreciative donation to the martial arts troupe for providing the entertainment.
