01 Fook & Rabbits

Rabbits are known to be very fertile and fecund, but don’t worry, all of these bunnies are very well behaved. The overall shape displays the character Fook [], commonly seen on front doors to welcome in good fortune.

If you look carefully, the composition of rabbits correspond to the brush strokes and form of the character. These papercuttings were first drawn and cut by hand, then digitised to be reproduced one-by-one using a Cricut blade-cutting machine. They are made with traditional Chinese red paper, maintaining its authentic texture and unmistakable colour. Part of the charm of this material lies in its small imperfections, variegated colour, and the way it fades over the course of the year.

The traditional red paper is very delicate, so you won’t find it on any mass-produced products. A bespoke process was developed to handle the material in a small-batched production at home. The paper is reinforced with a recycled card backing, made from 80% post-consumer waste, to improve its durability.
