“Eco-friendly handmade paper flowers for traditional art preservation and job creation”
SBC 2023 SUBMISSIONS
Inherited and inspired by the traditional craft village of Thanh Tien paper flowers – more than 300 years of age in Hue City, Vietnam, MAYPAPERFLOWER is born with the vision of preserving Vietnamese traditional values & revolutionizing the market of decoration products. At MAYPAPERFLOWER, we offer many product types, including flower bouquets, art pictures, and fashion accessories. Moreover, by innovating traditional techniques, MAYPAPERFLOWER now has more than 200 techniques for manufacturing different paper flowers, fitting different customers’ preferences. Most remarkably, as we want to make the best use of the redundant natural substances, all of our products are eco-friendly, therefore orienting customers to follow the sustainable production & consumption trend.
Lastly, we also seek to thrive lives by providing job opportunities for disadvantaged groups.
OUR TARGET SOCIAL ISSUE
Talking about Vietnamese traditional arts, according to VCVA in 2020, Hà Nội now has only 1,350 craft villages left, which means 544 villages have disappeared because of changing demand in customers. Besides, there is no big business in Vietnamese traditional arts that has enough resources to collect such data.
After applying the 5 Whys model as below, we realized the root causes are:
- NO ONE REALIZED THE POTENTIAL LABOR GROUPS (such as disadvantaged people): According to employment status data, while unpaid family labor for men is 9.2%, the figure for women is 19.4% in 2019. The average income of women (4.6 million) is always lower than men’s (6.5 million). Moreover, people with disabilities can’t have the same job opportunities as others due to the lack of diplomas and working abilities.
- NO ONE MADE USE OF THE CHEAP & ECO-FRIENDLY REDUNDANT SUBSTANCES: As businesses want to maximize their profits, art pieces nowadays are damaging both the environment and the health of their owners due to the number of toxic chemicals and natural sources required to produce them.
