In Anji

What appears at first glance to be a wholesale bamboo market at Tian Huang Ping Lu (10am-4pm) is actually a shopping stop for package tour day-trippers, although there are a few shops worth looking at. A favorite was the Tianzhuzhuang Bamboo Fiber Company (tel. 0572/502-9911), which has an extensive clothing stock, all made from 100% bamboo fiber, everything from socks and tennis sneakers to bath towels and winter long johns. We also like the outlet of the Bamboo Charcoal Factory (tel. 0572/520-9588), which sells bamboo shampoo, soap, and other toiletries.
