Lamp & Gift

We greatly value each moment of our lives, and we hope you will preserve all your special moments through our handmade customized lamps. Our lamp shades are handmade with Hanji, traditional Korean paper that has been in use for over 1500 years. Due to its sturdiness and smooth texture, Hanji has been used to make various household items, such as sliding doors and lanterns. Our Hanji lamps provide a classic, yet personal and sentimental, atmosphere. If you send us your precious photos, we will adjust the photos and create a lampshade that depicts your own personal story. 
In addition to Hanji lamps, we also offer other gifts that are made of Hanji, such as handmade cards to celebrate graduations, birthdays, mother’s day, and others. We also offer traditional African art, called Tinga Tinga, from Tanzania, which displays brilliant and highly saturated colors. Please visit our store in Ellicott City and we would love to share with you our passion in traditional art and gifts.
