It is a local specialty of Hangzhou. The history of production can be traced back to the Guangxu period of the Qing Dynasty. At that time, there were many people who went on a pilgrimage to Tianzhu and took a tour. When the locals lended meals to them, they cut solid Shuixin bamboos into chopsticks.
