Hong Kong, 1958. A modest metalsmith Mr. Chou founded United Art, a metalworking company specializing in high precision metal parts and components for a wide spectrum of industries, one of which was the gift industry.
Chou persevered through low margins and hard times, constantly improving his metalworking techniques to reach the highest quality of product. Chou eventually landed on a technique called “cold stamping”, a bold and innovative method that increased the smoothness and finishing of delicate metal gifts. This resulted in fine, consistent, high-quality metal gifts emerging in the market.
After 30 years of refinement, Chou and his team achieved a breakthrough in the world market in the form of the Butterfly Suncatcher collection. Praised for its delicate and beautiful metalwork, this collection spotlighted Chou’s effort and skill and made cold stamping a popular technique in the industry.
Despite the beauty it gives, almost all gift producers have moved away from cold stamping due to cost concerns. Today, Chou remains as the final champion of using this technique for its products, believing in the beauty and exquisiteness of his creations. Seeking to preserve this part of history, Chou’s descendants adopted new business models and founded CRYSTOCRAFT with one simple goal: To warm people’s hearts through exquisite gifts.
Founded in 2003 by Vincent and Eddie Chou, CRYSTOCRAFT believes in cherishing every moment of life’s journeys, in sharing joy and happiness through unique craftsmanship and artistry that resonates with people’s hearts.
Around the world, each exquisite metal and crystal gift captures timeless, heartwarming moments between people. Preserving the craftsmanship of cold stamping, the Chou brothers forged their own design team and utilized the finest European crystal elements for their gifts.
Metal gifts were often produced by injection molding for the lower production cost. Chou was the very first in the gift industry to boldly apply the cold stamping technique to produce delicate metal gifts, famous for the exquisite, smooth finish and high-quality consistency.
CRYSTOCRAFT is committed to preserving this craftsmanship in the industry because it is the core of creating the perfect gift, of creating special heartwarming moments.
