About Mandorla Chen

5 years ago, I was introduced to the craft of "Silk-wrapped Flowers" in the Miaoli Branch of National Taiwan Craft Research & Development Institute when I was studying in the university in Taiwan. The beauty and the shiny surface of silk-wrapped flowers attracted me and made me fell in love with this craft. The technologist of silk-wrapped flowers, Yu-Jie Shi, taught me this craft for free and wished they could promote it to the next generation.

For many times, I combined the silk-wrapped flowers craft with the knowledge and skill I have into footwear design and created some stunning artworks. 5 years after, I settled down and got married in the UK. After 2 years working in other fashion companies, I decided to follow Yu-Jie Shi's guidance and founded my own silk-wrapped flowers studio in a foreign country. Because of my passion for design and this craft, I would like to introduce the beauty of it to more people who love arts and crafts and also wish to share the cultural meaning behind silk-wrapped flowers.

The beauty of the silk-wrapped flowers lies in the love and passion the crafter brings into every item.
