Nan Fung Textiles – founded 1954 – mill to be re-used
James Chan: The SCMP had an article on 9th December 2014 about re-using the Nan Fung Textiles building at Nos 4,5 and 6 Pak Tin Par Street, Tsuen Wan, into a “creative landmark for fashion culture and an incubator for young design talent.”
The article says that “the original mills played a key role when the group was founded in 1954 by Chen Din-hwa, who began Nan Fung Textiles, one of the largest manufacturers in the city at the time…the factory was forced to cease operations in 2008 and became a storage site.”
