More About This Experience

The art of paper flower making is very well-known in Thanh Tien Village in Phu Vang District, Thua Thien-Hue Province. For over 300 years, they have built and maintained this reputation and supplied directly to the royalty in the Imperial Capital of Hue. Particularly famous for its lotus flowers they are used for decorating solemn places, altars, traditionally replaced annually during the Lunar New Year festival (Tet). The queer thing here is that they actually use paper lotus flowers made here rather than real lotuses, and this is because the weather in Hue is rather harsh with heavy rainfall and sunlight that makes growing flowers an uphill challenge. Thus the locals used their ingenuity and started making paper flowers to replace fresh ones and it has now been cemented into tradition. That is the reason for the popularity of Thanh Tien paper flower. Nowadays, it is not only use for worshipping but also for decorating in houses, restaurants and others, it is also a national flower of Vietnam. In addition, lotus paper flowers can be kept for a long time and is an intricate craft to learn. Create your own paper lotuses from masters at the thanh thien village!
