We’re tearing it up this summer with the Papercut Collection — a striking mix of papercutting with our favorite historical and pop culture icons. Stay cool & look sharp in the Viking, Monkey King, and Weezy designs, all available in three colors!
By the 6th century, Chinese papercutting was a high form of decoration and entertainment reserved for nobility. The art enjoyed widespread popularity between the 7th and 13th century, especially during traditional holiday festivals.
Today, papercutting remains a symbol of fortuity in Chinese culture; designs can be seen placed near building entrances to bring good luck and prosperity. The most skilled artists can produce unique and detailed designs with just a pair of scissors or razors in one continuous freehand cut.
Papercutting isn’t just an art form; it’s a piece of the past that has transcended time.
