Inspired by the art of Chinese paper-cutting, Ting yu Wang has created intricately cut paper eyelashes for PAPERSELF that blend an element of traditional culture with contemporary design.
The paper eyelashes are available in three styles, each infused with symbolic meaning rooted in Chinese culture;
Horses: symbolic of success
Peony: for happiness and good fortune
Peach blossom: a symbol of love and romance
