More information

A lantern is a brightly colored lamp that serves as decoration and to create a party atmosphere. This can occur in a sling, or be carried along with certain parties. The children make their own lantern that hangs on a pole and illuminated with a candle or battery indicator, and thus go knocking on doors. There is, in some regions of Flanders and the Netherlands in the habit of kids at school to make a lantern. On November 11th (St. Maarten) they go singing from door to door and beg for candy or so some change. In other regions this happens on January 6 (Epiphany). These lanterns made by local Vietnamese artisans, whose tradition goes back more than 600 years. The frames of the lanterns are handmade and hand strung with the best side, the lights are very suitable to decorate a room as a bedroom. Our lamps are handmade in Hanoi, local small-scale workshops. The material is used is 100% natural Vietnamese silk (natural silk from the silkworm is very famous in Asia, think of Jim Thompson in Thailand) The side has pretty bright and vivid colors and features Asian and other symbols. All lamps are handmade with natural materials such as bamboo, natural silk and certified wood.

These two parts fought through during the Second Indochina War, known as the Vietnam War (1957 to 1975), which eventually led to a North Vietnamese victory and a reunification of the two delen.Sinds reunification in 1976 Vietnam is a socialist people's republic.
