Chinese New year is approaching! Let’s cherish the time spent together with family and friends

Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, is one of the most important traditional holidays in China. It has been celebrated for centuries and s deeply rooted in Chinese culture. It holds great significance for China's factories and workers.

Chinese New Year has a deep cultural and historical significance in China. It is a time when families come together to celebrate and honor their ancestors.  It is considered a time of renewal and the beginning of a new lunar year.  People will gather together to express gratitude for the past year and to look forward to a fresh start in the coming year.

Chinese New Year is associated with an extended holiday period in China, known as the Spring Festival holiday (CNY holiday). This holiday typically lasts around 14 to 20 days for garment factories. During this time, many factories and businesses shut down or reduce their operations. People will take a break from their regular routine job and travel to their hometowns to spend time with family and friends. Chinese New Year is seen as a time for family reunion. Many workers in China are migrant workers who have left their hometowns to seek employment in larger cities. The Spring Festival provides them with an opportunity to return home and spend quality time with their families. It is a cherished time for family bonding and strengthening relationships.

During Chinese New Year, various customs and traditions are observed. These include cleaning and decorating homes before the new year; wearing new pyjama, red underwear and new clothes; visiting relatives and friends, giving red packet with money, enjoying feast and delicious meals with family. These traditions create a festive atmosphere and bring people together in celebration.

During CNY, our factory will be closed and operate with reduced staff, as many workers take time off to celebrate the holiday. This can result in a temporary slow-down in production and supply chains. However, our factory will prepare gift sets to workers and happy to see they are going home with joy. We deeply believe the importance of family and cultural traditions takes precedence during this period. Our factory will be closed from Feb 2-22, office will be closed from Feb 7-20, let’s celebrate and have a happy holiday!
