I assume we are talking about the shop page of Woocommerce plugin.

The shop page of Woocommerce plugin is archive page of post type "Product", you can customize/style it by wordpress archive with Views plugin:

And you can setup custom search for in the wordpress archive:

There isn't such a built-in feature within Views, but you can try with some PHP codes, for example:
1) Create two different wordpress archive:
a) title "Book archive", ID 123, assign it to taxonomy "Product Category"
b) title "T-shirt archive", ID 456, do not assign it to any archive page

2) When user open the archive page of term "T-shirt", use Views filter hook "wpv_filter_force_wordpress_archive", to trigger a PHP function, change the archive ID to 456 ("T-shirt archive").

More help:
Filters the ID of the WordPress Archive to be used on a given archive loop.


what about filter?
dynamic filter ?
for example for shirt & laptop categories when choose shirt shows attributes that related to it e.g color ,size , ... and when select laptop shows different attributes like cpu , lcd size, ram etc.,
is it possible something like dynamic filter ???
is it possible to make it with tool set or any plugin that you know ?


i`ll give you an example to see if there is chance.
we have mobile and T-Shirt category.
in mobile category every product have three attributes:1.Display Size 2.Cpu 3.Ram
and in mobile category there is many sub-category that each of them can have their attributes too.

and in T-Shirt category every product have three attributes:1.color 2.size 3.type
same as mobile category,T-shirt category can have sub-category that each of them can have their attributes too.

now i need to different search for each of theme.
i mean when a user went to mobile category he/she should be able to see mobiles based on:1.Display Size 2.Cpu 3.Ram
and when he/she went to t-shirt category he/she should be able to see t-shirt based on:1.color 2.size 3.type


if toolset can't do this what should i do?
