Chinese designers retain the memory of ancient crafts
When machines have not penetrated the sphere of production as much as now, the masters of ancient
times everything was done manually. Now in China the demand for manual work and enterprising Chinese designers responded to the demand and now draw patterns on fabrics using the ancient
technology of painting. The beginning and the direction of put the artist from the valley of Guizhou, had taught her so beautiful to write with a brush on white fabric her parents, is a hereditary craft, it is transmitted among the local population from father to son from grandfather to grandson. Living in this area of China the Shui, an ethnic minority in China. If the minority it does not mean that no talent, hudozhnica pan Haikou striking confirmation.
The video shows how the Artist pan Haikou draws on white fabric, bugs shouldn`t be here, if error, the entire work is not a masterpiece, and the thing in the trash. This beautifully painted scarf sold for good money and find a customer sometimes thousands of miles away from home in the valley of Guizhou. In an interview with the designer of the pan Xiuying said that she learned everything from her grandmother. Craft interesting, but my daughter doesn`t want him to learn, because there are so many temptations and so many options to earn money less difficult that interest to such a difficult lesson just disappears.
It is clear that what you do on the machines are always cheaper because the cost is less, but the machine makes everything on the machine without soul, leave things unique and not formulaic. If you need a unique clothing, then you need to buy a hand job. If the youth will see that drawing such masterpieces you can earn good money, then she will be more willing to learn this craft. Of course the girl from a remote village was very lucky that she found a employer from Hong Kong, which it supplies, and material and paint and pay a good price, but it turns out not all and it`s sad.
It is worth thinking over what the ancient
craft gradually lose relevance and get lost in time, only 10% is passed to the next generation. The fact is that the craft do not give proper wages and do not allow them to live in this urbanized society of machinery and equipment. The world educates the younger generation that they simply dazzled by the offers for buying things, but to capitalize on them, few will offer, and that has designers from remote places to find rich and smart sellers in Hong Kong only in order to survive in this mortal world.
