Over the years, artists from different communities competed with each other; each tried to outdo the other. As a consequence, Vietnam has some of the largest and most dazzling silk lanterns in the world. Also, a single lantern can have several colors and design patterns. So, it is difficult to find more beautiful lanterns in any part of the world.
One enterprising young man, Illac Diaz,of My Shelter Foundation, decided that he was going to do something about this situation. One day while he was out scavenging he saw a bunch of plastic 2 liter pop bottles. This gave him an idea and he took them home with him. Although he was not the originator of this low tech idea most people claim that it was invented by students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He thought that he could make use of them to direct some of the bright sunshine into his house. Some of his friends laughed at him and no doubt thought that he was crazy. How could you pull sunlight into your house with empty pop bottles.However he did not let these taunts deter him from his plan.

One of the most popular special effects is the "rosette". Here again the flower theme is repeated with sewing techniques that result in rose-like puffs. Usually they are combined with pleating or shirring that finishes the look. Another method is "fan pleating" - a pattern that is reminiscent of the fans used by Victorian ladies to cool themselves. Lace or burn-out velvet are often sewn on adjoining panels.
