I was a bit hesitant, shall we say, of buying an ornament made from paper. Once I received it, I was over any misgivings I might have had. The ornament is beautiful and should hold up for many years to come.

I am very impressed with how they are made. I already ordered 2 and already have plans of who to give them to. This is the 2nd set I've ordered because my niece wrecked the first set. :(
Artisan: Tiger Lily
Located in the Phu Nghia sector of Vietnam's Ha Tav province, Tiger Lily is a company with a difference.
In an area with burgeoning air and water pollution, Tiger Lily values reducing, reusing, and recycling, and preserves trees and ponds inside its grounds. Instead of being thrown into landfills, old magazines and newspapers are re-purposed into beautiful and functional pieces of home decor.
Tiger Lily's designs fuse traditional Vietnamese design elements, such as bamboo, rattan, and lacquer, with a Western sense of aesthetics. The artisans' high levels of skill and patience is evident in every piece.
"As this kind of product becomes popular in Western countries, it means that more chances of jobs and improving their lives."
As a small, community-oriented company, Tiger Lily hopes for a bright future bringing new life to old materials, and fair trade wages to skillful artisans.
