In the south with hot weather, items woven with rattan are loved by the citizens, especially the elderly. Summer chairs are sat in the summer chair, a rattan seat, and the breathable rattan compilation is not only cool, but also not long. But now under the impact of modern furniture, the old -fashioned rattan items market is getting smaller and smaller, instead of a large wave of new types of vine products. Today, there are only about four or five rattan operating stores in Jiaojiang. They have maintained the gradual disappearing rattan skills in their own ways.
Summer sunset vine chair fan
Light and durable vine baskets, delicate and cool vine chairs, cool and comfortable rattan mats, in the past residents’ homes, one or two rattan furniture and daily necessities can always be found.
The deepest memory is the big back vine chair that Grandpa’s favorite. Whenever the sunset in the summer, Grandpa moved the rattan chair to the aisle, fanned a fan, pumped a cigarette, and sat on the rattan chair. There are also neighbors, and each take the vine chair or bamboo chair, and make up in a row. Decades have passed, the armrests of the rattan chair and the rattan feet have been damaged. Grandpa was still reluctant to throw it, and he was still sitting comfortably with a cloth strip. I bought a new Taishi chair at home, but every summer, Grandpa still moved out of the old vine chair. It is difficult to change the habit of years.
These old vine -edited products are simple in shape and similar, and the colors are light yellow, but the natural materials and cool and durable characteristics make the people in the past love it. There was no air conditioner in the past. In the hot summer, I spent the vine chairs and vine mats, especially giving gifts to the elderly. If a rattan chair is given, the old man must clap his hands and applaud.
In that simple era, poor conditions, few items, and the role of rattan chairs. At work, the rattan chair is a must -have tool; in winter, the sun can be taken in winter, and it can be cold in summer; when you sleep, the wide vine chair is a good place to stack clothes. As a guest, the vine chair is often regarded as the throne of Feng Shui, so that the guests are given to the guests.
Four generations operating old -fashioned sales are difficult
Today, living conditions have improved, various new furniture has emerged endlessly, and rattan furniture has become increasingly difficult to see. At present, there are only four or five merchants who sell rattan in Jiaojiang City. They are distributed in Yongxing Street, Yongtai Street, Wanji Chichi cuisine and urban areas in Haimen Street.
A rattan operating store on Fengnan Road is a larger rattan furniture shop in the urban area. Entering the store, a variety of vine chairs, rattan beds, and rattan tables are full of shops. The boss Wang Meili told reporters that the old -fashioned vine chair was not done as early as seven or eight years ago. Now the store is all sold in Guangdong.
Wang Meili’s family is located in the interest village of Sanjia Street. She has been a handmade rattan business since her Taigong. Now her generation has continued for four generations. “When I was very young, my dad often compiled a rattan chair, vine basket, and rattan, and was sold to the sea gate in the sea gate.” Wang Meili said. At that time, there were many people who could make a rattan craftsmanship, but the summer business was good, and he could always sell one or two a day.
In the past, the materials for making rattan chairs were not strong enough, and it was easy to damage after a long time. In the 1980s, Indonesian vine imported from the 1980s, and it was imported by Indonesian vine, which created conditions for making the vine chairs we see now. In the 1990s, the business of rattan chairs reached the most brilliant time. The Wang Meili family also expanded the small workshop factories, inviting craftsmen to work.
At that time, the old -fashioned vine chair style was the same, but in addition to the rattan chair, the clever craftsman can also make a rattan table, a rattan bench, and even a rattan painting. In Wang Meili’s shop, many old -fashioned vine furniture more than ten or twenty years ago can still be seen. “The coffee table under the TV is made of rattan, and the paintings on the wall are also.” The paintings woven with a vine, the reporter saw the first eye: rectangular craft painting, the frame was wrapped in thick rattan, the frame was wrapped in thick rattan, The bottom of the painting is a fine and tidy rattan, and several large flowers that are simply folded with vines are posted on the rattan. The entire crafts are simple, but the walls on the wall complement each other, which enhances the elegant beauty to the entire room.
In the 21st century, Wang Meili found that the old -fashioned rattan furniture business became difficult to do. On the one hand, the cost of small workers increased. On the other hand, it was not only cheap but more popular in Foshan, Guangdong Foshan. Coupled with Typhoon Yuna in 2004, the warehouse was damaged, and the vine furniture stored in the factory was all broken. Later, Wang Meili gradually reduced homemade rattan furniture, and changed to Guangdong to enter the finished product, and he focused on making vine cookers.
The master of hand -made rattan chairs on Yongtai Street told reporters that he has done decades of rattan business, and weave all old -fashioned rattan chairs. Today, this old -fashioned rattan chair is only older who is old. He insists on the production of this old -fashioned vine chair every day. The chair maintains a living.
Old tradition compiles new tricks
Compared with the old -fashioned rattan products, more and more new types of vine objects are gradually loved by young people. Today’s vine products are no longer limited to those simple and simple styles, rattan lampshades, rattan bookshelves, rattan hams, rattan crafts and other decorations are becoming more and more abundant. Fashionable round stools, square stools, sofas, rocking chairs, and even hanging chairs.
In the summer, sit around the rattan stool, lighten the small lamp with rattan lampshades, pick a book on the rattan bookstore, drink fragrant jasmine tea, and quietly stay for one afternoon. This It feels like being in a primitive and quaint atmosphere, and without losing the fashion atmosphere, it adds a bit of coolness to the room.
Nowadays, young people who buy modern rattan furniture are gradually increasing. They have both retro style and small assets of life, and their prices are relatively moderate. If you want to experience the attitude of life to return to your true life, vine furniture is the best choice.
The steps of opening, assembly, assembly, polishing, weaving, paint … The steps of making rattan furniture are basically the same, but there are many doorways in them. The vine from choosing to curved materials to weaving, each step is particular. The selection of the rattan is not good, and the surface is easy to wrinkle; the curved material is not in place, and the people are not comfortable to sit up; the polishing is not meticulous and easy to tie hands; if the weaving is not delicate enough, it will affect the aesthetic level.
According to Master Teng, if you want to choose a good rattan furniture, first observe the appearance of the furniture, whether there is wrinkles on the rattan, and the corners of the edge are fine enough. The burr, touch the furniture with your hands, do you feel like you tie your hands. If you do n’t have wrinkles, it is fine enough, and you do n’t tie your hands, it means that it is a good rattan furniture.
