Wooden toilet seats made in southwestern China’s Guizhou province are apparently selling like hot cakes in the West.
Chinese toilet seat maker Topseat is now selling more than 2 million seats annually on the Western market with 80% of those sales occurring in Germany and Switzerland, reports state newspaper People’s Daily, citing a public WeChat account in Guizhou.
On its website, Topseat calls itself the ‘world leader in toilet seat design, production and perfection, recognized internationally for its top quality and innovation,’
This seat is convenient for people at night as its sensor lights can be put out automatically
It introduces itself by asking you to ‘Imagine a toilet seat so artistic that it shows motion pictures when the lid automatically closes in slow motion.’
From its factory in Guizhou’s Anshun city, the company creates its bright decorative toilet seats from locally-sourced materials such as bamboo, straw stalks and bio-glues, which they have used to create more than 5,000 unique designs.
Styles to suit all tastes: Including traditional bamboo or the cosmopolitan Eiffel Tower, Paris
Getting back to nature: Shoppers can choose to be in nature, with palm trees or wild animals
Consumers can buy a range of covers from popular retail sites Alibaba and Amazon.
On the Amazon website the company’s products generally receive high ratings and praise from satisfied customers. ‘I have never spent this much for a toilet seat and this is well worth the price,’ wrote one customer.
‘Quiet slow closing of lid and seat just as described. Wish we would have bought these sooner. Have had many compliments and where did you get that?’ commented another.
