CHINESE ART

Also referred to as the ‘Spring Festival‘, the Lunar New Year is one of the most important traditional Chinese holiday. It’s also one of the longest celebrated festivals with lots of presents, decorations, sweet delicacies and new clothing. Windows, doors and houses will be decorated with red (the ‘lucky color’) paper-cuts and couplets.

While we love feasting during this festival, we also love receiving red packets. Over the years, this has also transformed into a collectible ‘Art’, where companies, museums and shops will produce beautifully designed red packets to give to their customers or clients. An inspiration and a beauty, here’s some of our favorites that we’ve collected. Aren’t they gorgeous?

Here’s wishing everyone¬†a happy and prosperous Chinese New Year!¬†May the year of the Snake bring good health and fortune to us all!
