It's a nice one. Thick, soft, chenille, anti-slip, microfibre.

But does it really warrant the enclosed words?

'Standing on the carpet
you will feel soft and comfortable
It brings the body relax
as well as a beautiful little happiness.'


:? :o :?

    Am I right in thinking that the Chinese culture is rich with emphasising the better qualities of things and what they can bring to one? Yes, it is only a bathmat but if it can give you a 'beautiful little happiness' then more power to its elbow! DD

    From things I have read on writing product descriptions it is "reccommended" that you emphasis key features and use descriptive language to make your prospective customer feel they need your item over other similar ones.
    I, needless to say struggle with this.

    I'm sure that's true, Slosh, but not in this case as it was written on a card which was only visible once the bag was opened.

    I'm rather warming to it :roll:

    I've just bought a case for my mobile phone from China. This has a card in which says:

    It is a pleasure to meet you, thank you for shopping at our store. We look forward to assisting you in the further. Best regards.

    And, on the back:

    Please kindly rated the product. If any question, please contact us freely.

    I can't help but smile. At least they're trying. And their English is much better than my Chinese :wink:

    (And I still love the bath mat.)
