Ruifuxiang Silk Store was established by Meng Hongsheng, descendant of Mengzi (Meng ke, Chinese Confucian philosopher). Meng Hongsheng was from Zhangqiu, Jiujun county, Shandong Province and he first built up his business by selling hand-woven cloth with the shop named Ranfuxiang. With thriving business, Meng Hongsheng started to set up chain stores in Shanghai, Qingdao, Tianjin, etc. and extended his business to luxury commodities such as silk, satin, tea and furs.
What is the meaning of "Ruifu Xiang"? It was said that the founder of Ruifu Xiang cited the literary quotation of "Qingfu Return Currency". "Fu" is an insect in ancient time and the baby insect coated with blood of its mother could fly back. Qingfu represented copper coin in ancient times. Therefore, the name of the store involves deep consideration. The founder of Ruifu Xiang hoped the store could make rolling profits.
