The Wooden Duck and the seven brothers

The history of DP Duck is extremely fascinating. This is how the factory started: From 1910 to 1945, the woodcarving industry prospered in Sanyi. The grandfather of the Tang Family built a factory in 1925. It was then inherited by the brothers of the second generation. Later a devastating earthquake destroyed the factory and the brothers then went separate ways. From 1960 to 1980, Taiwan’s wooden sculptures became a hit overseas.

The industry prospered again as Japanese, American and overseas Chinese returning to the country increase the need of wooden sculptures. Factories at Sanyi professionalized in wooden Gods sculptures, animals, screen, furniture, tea sets, and fruit plates. The Tang brother reentered the business, and together built another factory in 1963.

In 1973, the seven brother of the Tang Family expanded the factory. With over 3,000 overseas orders for wooden ducks, it became the new symbol for the family business. Orders from Europe, the USA and Japan overwhelmed the factory, showing the Tang brothers a new path. In 2002, they expanded the business in the direction of cultural and creative industry after they go to know the Kuan -Shu Educational Foundation by chance. From traditional woodcarving factory to a tourist spot, the family business renamed itself DP Duck, and started in a new direction.

 

The DP Duck as we see now is a multifunctional park that hosts an arts area, DIY area, educational exhibition area, and outdoors café. With the capacity of up to 240 people, the DIY area is welcome to group visitors from schools, institutions, as well as families and individuals.
