What is Xanadu?
Xanadu, also spelled Shangdu or Shang-tu was the summer capital of Kubla Khan's Yuan Dynasty in present day China. Xanadu was visited by Venetian explorer Marco Polo in 1275 and it became the first stop in The Silk Road from Europe to Asian. As time went on, the word Xanadu became a metaphor for opulence and richness.
I started Xanadu Designs in 2005 and picked the name because it signifies many of the qualities I try to bring across in my creations. A perfect combination of East meets West and a certain fantasy like opulence is what I hope to achieve with my jewelry and handbag designs.
I hope you find something here that you just can't live without!
