Department Introduction

Yilan was the main place of supply for all clogs in Taiwan in the 1950’s. The main material for clogs, the Schefflera tree, can be commonly seen in the mountains around Baimi Village. As a result, Baimi Village started the clog industry. As the time goes by, plastic slippers replaced clogs as the mainstream products in the market, and Baimi Village went down with the clog industry. The Council for Cultural Affairs started the promotion of the “community development” policy in 1994. Afterwards, Baimi Village started the journey of community revitalization by rediscovering the village through interviews with elderly people in the community. From the name “clog lair” to the idiom “Baimiweng produces clogs; You have to take the risk of getting caught to steal the woods in the forest”, residents of the village seem to have found the treasure of the village, the “clog”, in their memory. With the promotion from the organization in the village, Baimi Village created a unique clog culture industry with community cooperatives in 1998. It later founded the only Clog Museum in Taiwan in 1999. Baimi Village combines its daily life culture with the clog industry completely and this allows visitors to not only know more about clogs but see the local culture of the community at the same time.
