The history of Da-Ching Incense Making Factory can be traced back to more than 150 years ago when their ancestors started selling joss papers and sticks as the family business. The actual incense-making factory was first established by their great grandfather Mr. Mao-Gui Hsieh in 1945. It is now a 4th-generation operated family business headed by Mr. Po-Chuan Hsieh with the goal of keeping the traditional skill alive in the modern society. Although they are facing the problem of the soaring price of the raw material and decreasing uses of incense, they are resolved to pass the skill down to the future generations.
