11 May 2022 (Chongqing, China) – With the Dragon Boat Festival approaching, Niccole Chongqing has created two elegant dumpling gift boxes in olive green. These exquisite boxes were inspired by the artwork that is omnipresent in the hotel, to bring guests an authentic traditional taste of the Dragon Boat Festival.
The design of the gift box draws inspiration from the artwork and paintings on display in the public areas of the hotel. The outer box is simple yet abundant in its elegance, with the "N" of Niccolo in a dark pattern forming the base. The effect is reminiscent of a designer handbag and incorporates a sense of the contemporary. The inner box is hand-painted with a hotel artwork. The "Elegant Rice Dumpling" gift box was specially designed in the shape of a fashionable clutch with an eye toward sustainable development, so that it can be reused as a daily carry bag after the festive season.
The two gift boxes feature a selection of sweet and savoury rice dumplings with traditional salted duck eggs and the characteristic Congongrass cliff berry tea. This tea, containing active brass, is slightly bitter with a pleasantly sweet aftertaste, and suitable for the daily consumption of modern city dwellers. With the addition of a fine bottle of Italian GIACONDI VINO ROSSO red wine, the "Elegant Rice Dumpling" gift box is a perfect gift for friends and relatives.
