Lanterns have long been a quintessential decoration in traditional Chinese culture. However, in an era of industrialization, such labor-intensive traditional crafts are struggling to survive. Fortunately, with the government providing guidance on transforming the craft, this deeply culturally significant traditional craft has now been given a new lease on life.
Today, lanterns have evolved from their original function into decorative traditional handicrafts. Lanterns embellished with complex designs have added a modern edge to the tradition. Visitors can make their personalized, one-of-a-kind lantern at the factory. Evershine Lantern Factory lights up Taiwan’s cultural landscape with new thinking about an old tradition.
