Marking the end of the autumn harvest, the Mid-Autumn Festival was traditionally a time to give thanks to the gods. In the past, families would get together to make offerings of osmanthus-flavoured wine, spherical fruits such as pears, grapes, pomegranates and of course mooncakes to the heavens, to express gratitude for a bumper harvest as well as enjoy a reunion with relatives who live far away. Today, mooncakes will be exchanged as gifts, family get together to feast, and children gathers to play with lanterns, illuminated with candles - the light from the lanterns create a soft glow, which complements the surroundings and makes it easier for people to watch the moon.
The stamps are made of industrial high grade red rubber with the finest details. It is mounted by hand on re-purposed aged wood or on raw wood bark, hand-picked from various sources from old furnitures to jungle excursions! As all stamps are assembled, cut, sanded by hand, size and shape may vary slightly. Wood material will differ depending on what the forest elves bring!
You can choose your wood handles:
• Square wood handle (default) measures 4.5cm x 4.5cm - the red rubber image prints will be approximately within the handle (sized proportionately according to design)
• Raw wood bark handle. The wooden bark handle is limited, not one is the same.
Stamps might be slightly stained because of quality tests during the process, but it will not affect your stamping color.
Do allow up to 1 to 2 weeks for crafting before sending out.
