March 23, 2015 - Great idea just needs to be packaged better for shipping.

October 3, 2014 - very cute and a good size ... but had to glue it back together...so i glued all over the whole thing with school glue

January 10, 2014 - I did not open the box till Christmas because they were all gifts. I found 2 of the 8 butterflies had com unglued. I was only able to use 6 of them.

December 28, 2013 - This was a birthday gift for my best friend. She loves all butterflies and she certainly loved this one. She immediately hung it on her Christmas tree!

December 12, 2013 - Beautiful and well-made. Be sure to read dimensions - it's much larger than I expected.

Artisan: Tiger Lily

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.
