What do you do when you suddenly recall a friend who you have not seen for a long time?
A Chinese Antique Envelope Tells the Stories of Old-Time Friendship
In the modern days, we just need a call, or a message to invite friends for reunions. But for people in ancient times, to telecom with friends was beyond their imagination, and to invite friends home to have dinner was supposed to be ceremonious. People would put letters in envelopes and have their servants (if they have ones) complete the delivery.
Perhaps it was because the weight of a letter was as light as a feather, the rich ancient Chinese sometimes used envelopes made in precious metals to express their genuineness (and to show off their wealth).

Celebrate Genuine Friendship with Exquisite Antique Envelopes
As the old saying goes, “Truly great friends are hard to find.” In an age when communication is replaced by online messages, convenience sometimes makes us forget the preciousness of friendship.
Perhaps an antique envelope will not only remind us of the meaning of true friendship but will also be a great gift for your best friend.
