This paper-making workshop still uses the traditional way to make paper. In every spring and winter, the workers are busy with collecting bamboos from the mountains to make preparation for the paper-making.  The bamboo needs to be fermented for more than ten days. It is said that 72 steps will be taken for the bamboo turned into paper. This kind of handmade paper is mainly used for making fans, rain hats, or burning as money during sacrifice events.
