Sky Lanterns

The “Original” Fire Retardant was invented in 2006 in Shijie, Dongguan, GD PRC. Since the day we invented these new lanterns, the fire retardant sky lanterns have become an established trend in the West. From top quality fast rising lanterns to the cheap less safe copies being pushed on uninformed buyers. Today nearly everyone in the West now knows this item.

We supply two main versions:


18 GMS double sided paper, strong & easy to unfold and fly

6x9cm 5 layers of waxed cotton cloth with grass paper inserted between layers

"Economy Lanterns"

14 GMS one sided paper, better quality thinner paper, one of the best quality papers available at 14GMS

7x7 cm Five layers of waxed cotton cloth with grass paper inserted between layers
