Our aim is to utilize the traditional Oil Paper Umbrella crafts making techniques, at the same time respect and preserve the craftsmen's genuine intention, to present a truly original structure of the Oil Paper Umbrella in modern lighting. By employing this traditional craftwork into lighting design, we could bring a new possibility to the Oil Paper Umbrella industry.
