Bamboo products and crafts refer to products made of bamboo as raw materials. In addition to daily use of chopsticks, chopping boards, mats, etc., bamboo flooring and bamboo furniture are popular in recent years, and bamboo carvings and other handicrafts are of high value in bamboo products.
In ancient times, China's Central Plains and the northern regions did not grow bamboo, so they were written with animal bones. When the south was rich in bamboo, the symbols or words were engraved on the bamboo. But the bamboo tube is difficult to store, not comparable to the animal bone. Therefore, after a long period of time, we are fortunate enough to see the Oracle relics of the Yin and Shang Dynasties today, but it is difficult to see the bamboo carvings of the time. However, according to the records in the ancient literature, the source of Chinese bamboo carving art has already appeared before the Shang Dynasty. This is beyond doubt. China is the first country in the world to use bamboo products.
The processing of bamboo products mainly consists of two major categories: bamboo and bamboo. Bamboo weaving is the processing of bamboo into bamboo or bamboo that can be woven. The processing technology of bamboo carving is more specialized, and has been appreciated as an art since ancient times. Due to people's pursuit of quality, bamboo crafts are not only used to make bamboo baskets and bamboo baskets. Floor lamps, table lamps in modern home decoration, luggage in life, etc. can also be made through bamboo weaving, and are beautiful and practical.
China has loved bamboo since ancient times. China is the earliest country in the world to research, cultivate and use bamboo. Bamboo and plum, orchid and chrysanthemum are known as the four gentlemen, and their reputation for sifting the wind and making a lifetime is well known. Su Dongpo said: "It is better to eat without meat, not to live without bamboo. No meat is thin, no bamboo is vulgar. People are thin and fat, and customs are not medical." The simple and straightforward language shows that a long history The spirit has penetrated the bones of scholars. Bamboo's "power festival" represents unyielding rhythm; its "emptiness" represents a humble mind, and its "Xiao Shu" represents the poet's superiority. Therefore, bamboo is in a high position in the eyes of scholars.
