We have seen similar pictures in many movies depicting the future world: people live, work, and entertain, but rarely use them. It can be said that the modernization process has been accompanied by manualization. At the same time, people still lose the sense of handmade ritual, natural texture and uniqueness.
In China, handcraft has always had a place in traditional culture. Earlier, there was a carpenter, Lu Ban, who sought art. In the Ming Dynasty, there was also an emperor, Zhu Yu, who did not love Jiangshan’s love of carpenters. According to legend, the “playing funeral” emperor, hand-made rumors reached the point of perfection: the bed made by his own hand-painted and sawn wood nail board is not only light, but exquisite flower carving is even more impressive. At that time, men were proud of their hands. “Dream of Red Mansions” made Cao’s kite a gene of Chinese culture; nowadays, men who have handmade are already legendary. On this autumn day, the handcraft of handmade leather goods may make the male animals who are men really appreciate the sexiness from nature.
Handmade sexy and sensual
From the carpenter’s originator Lu Ban’s art, to the Ming Dynasty’s “playing funeral” to the emperor Zhu You’s school, who can make a bed by hand, to the Cao’s kite and Cao Xueqin’s “Nanbei Beijiao Gongji” in “Dream of Red Mansions”, the craftsmanship has always been It is an option for Chinese men to show off their own charms. Even the unscrupulous “Xiaowu” in Jia Zhangke’s movie has to buckle the beautiful hat of “handsman”. In foreign countries, the painter who took the brush on the Seine River in Paris, the old craftsman with the original nature in a hand-made workshop in Spain, all the people who lived with their hands seemed to have a natural and fascinating temperament.

According to legend, after the shipwreck of the Titanic, a Louis Vuitton suitcase on board was not the same as the fate of the cruise ship. Instead, it floated on the sea for several months and was finally salvaged by people at the port. When people opened the box, everyone was surprised to find that the dripping water in the box did not enter! The exquisite craftsmanship of the old craftsmen wrote such a modern myth.
Regardless of legend or mythology, the craftsmanship of handcrafts is even in the city. As we all know, for a product, although the hand-made is not as uniform as the flow-through production of the big factory, because the emotional and human factors are incorporated into the production process, the final effect is more impressive. There is such a story about handcraft: a lady made a handmade handbag, but because the fake hand-made wiring is not as neat as the machine made (that is of course!), there is a sense of beauty, then the handle bag is returned again purchased an assembly line product.
If this matter is true, I really want to laugh at her ignorance. Handcrafted by hand craftsmen, it plays a decisive role for brands that consistently focus on quality and efficiency. Especially for handmade leather goods, hand-made can more accurately pinch the raw materials. Looking back at some luxury brands that started out as handmade leather bags, such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Loewe, etc., in the early years, they did not advocate the hand-made in the small workshop, and they are very proud of it. The Gucci family had a fierce debate over whether to move the factory to Asia in pursuit of low cost. The result was to ensure the brand’s consistent high quality. The famous handbags still need to be hand-made by the most authoritative old craftsmen in Florence. . Louis Vuitton released an advertisement during the economic crisis. The protagonist is no longer the superstar of the past, but has become an apprentice in a hand-made workshop, sewing two pieces of fabric together to convey “manual the meaning of making, can last forever.”
