Chop Alley, also known as Man Wa Lane, lies in Sheung Wan near Central in Hong Kong. The lane, whose second name means Chinese Cultural lane, is lined with shops of chop-makers. These chop-makers engrave characters of ancient and modern Chinese scripts and sometimes foreign scripts onto jade, wood, cow bone and crystal. Even paintings are carved onto these objects. Due to the decreasing popularity of traditional seals, some shops have also started printing name cards and mass-producing rubber seals.
