Paper Moon sells very beautiful Chinese folk paper-cut art pictures and cards as well as gifts, paper decorations and gorgeous wrapping paper. Wei, the owner of the shop, hand makes and sells her own Chinese folk paper-cut art. Every single piece is cut by hand and each artwork is priced according to how many hours it took to create using just a pair of scissors and a set of various sized sculptural knives.
Each paper-cut design has its own story and represents different blessings such as fortune, long life and happiness.
Paper cutting is a traditional art in China which began after the invention of paper in Han Dynasty, and became so popular that even the ladies of the royal families were judged by their ability to paper-cut.
