Loretta H. Yang and Chang Yi are the co-founders of LIULI and lead the brand as Creative Director and Brand Manager respectively.
Over three decades, LIULI has opened the doors for and given new life to the lost art of Chinese Liuli. Through untiring experimentation, Yang and Chang went from pâte-de-verre novices to experts in the field. Their emphasis has always been on Chinese culture and history and in terms of the value of craft, has always insisted on a hands-on approach.
Each LIULI creation goes through an twelve-step process, lasting a total of six to eight weeks. In addition, each series is part of a limited collection, driving the team to constantly create new works.
LIULI’s launching point is always in the aspect of material. They scrutinize the myriad of possibilities held by contemporary lifestyle design and push Liuli to pass the boundaries of accessory and craft to incorporate it into modern culture and life.
