This nylon lantern is durable and long lasting. This lantern has a shimmer to it which regular paper lanterns do not have. Mix-and-match different sizes ranging from 4" all the way to large and giant 42" oversized paper lanterns to match your Rustic Chic, Barn, American, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, and Indian Wedding themes or your kid's room, Baby Room or Nursery.
I really love this lantern light. It's not paper, it looks much more expensive than it's actual cost. We're using it as a chandelier/pendant in our living room with a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams. It definitely gives that warm minimalism vibe, very wabi sabi.
