Connects the past and the present
with finest craftsmanship
Paper has always been our medium for telling stories.
Paper can have unlimited possibilities. We draw inspiration from the graceful curves of traditional paper-cut art. Our work reinterprets and sublimates the traditional paper-cut art. This is the breakthrough point of paper art's color, structure, layer and fineness. We take the cultural elements of different regions as the theme of creation. Our work become an expression vector of traditional culture, and they contribute to the inheritance of culture.
The art of paper-cutting is a traditional art with a history of 1500 years in China. And it has been selected as a national intangible cultural heritage list. We hope that the new art of paper-cutting can show the Chinese cultural heritage and promote traditional culture. And paper art brings a breakthrough that connects the past and the present.

Since engaging in design work, our brand designers have always shouldered social responsibilities, committed to uniting the disadvantaged groups in Hong Kong, leading them to participate in the production of Hong Kong original products, promoting Hong Kong culture, promoting Hong Kong's core values, and helping the disadvantaged groups integrate into society.
For a long time, commercial organizations often only outsource some low-tech packaging work to the disabled due to misunderstanding. For ten years, most of the brand's products were produced in close cooperation with sheltered workshops. We have incorporated a "work-friendly" design approach during product development, taking into account the productivity and needs of people with disabilities. Our designers introduce safe, clear, and easy-to-assemble designs for each part of the product, and provide proper guidance and exclusive utensils during the production process to minimize the difficulties students encounter when making products. Develop specialty products that meet commercial considerations and take into account the productive capabilities of people with disabilities.
