When the Taipei City Government was verifying in 1998, Taipei City Government ruled the shop as the centennial shop of Taipei City and presented an award medal based on the proof provided by the 95-year- old village head, Tien-Ci Chen, in Shihlin District, Xinyi Village.

In the early days, Tien-Ci Li and his son, Xi Li, were in the comforter flicking business in Dayuan. However, as the result of fire in their old house in Dayuan District.

In 1962, the oldest daughter of Huo-Ling Li, Chun-Cha Li took over the comforter business while her husband was responsible for the factory affairs. Due to the solid foundation built by Huo-Ling Li, the business of Li’s comforters thrived. After Chun- Cha Li took over the business, the economy of Taiwan eventually took off plus the concept of required new comforter in additional marriage, “Ruicheng” became the representative in specializing pure cotton handmade comforters and the business reached the peak in 1977.

However the variety of comforters became more diverse since 30 years old, including down comforter, wool comforter and silk quilt that hit the business of the old Shop by 70% in reduction. After the fifth-generation owner Bao-Ren Zhang took over the business, he broke the traditional self-manufacturing and self-marketing model by adopting a new-old strategy to transform the old comforter Shop into a bedding specialist Shop. Owner Zheng held the responsibility to transform the centennial family business and insisted to pass down the crafts of the ancestors through generations.
