Tradition and Craftmanship Hand in Hand

Were you born in the Year of the Pig?

1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019

People born in the Year of the Pig are known to be gentle, selfless and loyal. They also tend to be diligent, compassionate and generous.

The Shēngxiào Collection celebrates the wonderful, age-old Chinese customs of sharing gifts that symbolise love, luck and good fortune with family, friends and colleagues. The lunar calendar also sets out important dates for people to celebrate significant life events.

Every year since 2014, we have released another addition to The Shēngxiào Collection. This year sees a rare opportunity to celebrate the Year of the Pig. Coming around only once every 12 years, people born under this sign are believed to be loyal, generous and gentle; the design by Harry Brockway represents these traits and the cultural traditions behind the lunar calendar.
