Expertise

The know-how of our kites is unique and handmade from two natural materials: bamboo and silk.
Our production workshop is run by Pan and his mother and is located in Weifang, Pan's hometown &amp; iconic kite city. Our team of craftsmen are among the rare people to have the know-how of traditional Chinese kite flying passed down from generation to generation.
The structure is bamboo cut lengthwise to obtain thin sticks which are then heated to give them shape. Very meticulous twine knots connect the stems together. The structure is then covered in translucent silk and painted with washes of colored inks.

The poetry and beauty of the kites, made of hand-painted silk with colored inks, gave Myriam the idea of ​​using the traditional technique, diverting them to create more sedentary objects. Lights, mobile, miniature, become clouds, fish, rockets, butterflies and settle into the
house, as if the sky had entered through the window
