The Story of CDL Lifesize Nutcrackers: Where East Meets West for Lasting Holiday Magic
CDL Lifesize Nutcrackers are more than just decorations; they're heirlooms waiting to be created. Our story begins in Lishui City, China, a place steeped in history and a natural heaven for crafting beautiful Wooden Handicrafts.

Rooted in Tradition:

Nestled in the "Zhejiang Green Valley," Lishui City boasts a subtropical climate perfect for growing high-quality pine and other hardwoods. This abundance of natural resources has fueled a thriving wooden handicrafts industry since 1972. Lishui City is not just any Wooden Handicrafts maker; it's the heart of China's wooden Handicrafts production, accounting for a staggering 70% of the country's output and 40% of the world's. This rich heritage in craftsmanship translates into the exceptional quality of CDL's lifesize nutcrackers.

Beyond Affordability:

CDL was founded in 2016 with a vision – to bridge the gap between Eastern handcrafted tradition and the beloved Western Christmas symbol of the nutcracker. We achieve this by employing skilled artisans who meticulously handcraft each lifesize figure. This approach not only ensures affordability but also creates a unique and environmentally friendly production process. Unlike mass-produced, often plastic alternatives, CDL's nutcrackers are made with sustainable wood and finished with minimal environmental impact.

Where East Meets West: Creating Lasting Memories

CDL brings together the time-honored techniques of Eastern craftsmanship with the timeless joy of the Western Christmas nutcracker. We believe these handcrafted figures are more than just decorations; they are focal points that create lasting memories for families during the holidays.
