Story Behind the Art
In the early 1980s during Tet (Chinese New Year) people would make a different lantern or lanterns every year out of many types of materials. The artisan, Mr. Thu, found the brocade silk commonly known as Vietnamese Silk went very well over a split bamboo, that if compressed, could form a shape. His lanterns were a hit at the full moon festival, which now is the highlight of anyone's trip to Vietnam. Mr. Thu's lanterns decorate not just Hoi An during the full moon festival, but they are seen throughout Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi and every village in between. He now is doing very well, well-respected, enjoying life and retired. He watches his grandchildren grow and is still seeing his business thrive. His daughter Tuyen manages the lantern production in their home workshop employing hundreds of their neighbors.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

Beautiful lamp to accent a reading area or vanity. The layers of petals are not connected so it does take a little bit of assembly to align the petals up. But once it's hanging, it's very unique and pretty.Read More
