Woven Bamboo Wares with Porcelain Bodies Inside

This craftsmanship originates in Chengdu of the Qing Dynasty, with a history of more than one

hundred years.The utensils are of national recognition as special local handicrafts, noted for

their fineness and characteristic of “choice materials, silk thin filament, close stickedness

between bamboo wares and the porcelain bodies, densely hidden heads and multicoloured silk”.

The entire production process, from stock, silk making and weaving, to ornamentation, is by manual operation with hands and knife. Every bamboo thread is shaped in compliance with the porcelain body and tightly attached to the face; all the joints are fully concealed as if the utensil is

born to be one whole piece, hence, the craftwork is also called porcelains covered by bamboo silk

which derives only from the surface layer of bamboo. With delicate and dense fibre, it is desiccation resistant, ametabolic, worm-damage-free, water-resistant and cleanable after special processing.The handicraft has its emphasis on the integration of sight enjoyment and practicality. From canteens, rice bowls, cigarette cases in the Qing Dynasty, to modern vases, sugar basins, caddies, vovered-bowl tea, toothpick canisters, purses, caskets, etc., they are beautiful and banausic tourism souvenirs and artifacts. Various patterns, in particular knitted around the mouths or across the handles of the woven wares such as tea , wine and coffee set, stationery, smoking and sofa set , or designs on the curved little handgrips of nozzle cups, are the unique accomplishment that distinguishes the craftsmanship from other types of bamboo weaving.


Shu Embroidery


Shu Embroidery is one of the four famous embroidery styles in China, juxtaposed with Su embroidery, Xiang embroidery and Yue embroidery. It is world-renowned for the exquisite workmanship and idiographic effect. With precise stitch, nice needlework, smooth and bright lines, simple and elegant hues, it is worth aestheticappreciation and collection, thus, a superb gift for household collection, interior decoration and xenium.

Embroidering on thin and transparent nylon gauzes, the serials of double-sided Shu embroidery

(Lotus and Carp) employs very difficult approach of stitching, incorporating with perspectives and various swimming strokes of ups and downs taken by the carp which therefore seems alive roaming in the limpid spring river. The magnum opus of this kind is a piece of collection present in China Arts and Crafts Museum.The (Giant and Lesser Panda) serials of double-sided Shu embroidery integrates dozens of primary stitches of its style, giving a lifelike representation of our national treasure Giant Panda’s clumsy and lovely looks.



Chengdu Lacquerwork


Chengdu lacquerwork has a time-honored history of more than 2300 years dating back to the Qin and Han Dynasty.The lacquer earrings with graphics of the Chinese characters ”Ba Shu Tu Yu” , excavated from the Warring States Period mausoleum in Xingdu, Sichuang Province, is the earliest Chengdu lacquerwork in the history of archeological discovery. articles of Chengdu lacquerwork are lacquer screens, replicas of unearthed cultural relics, hundreds of

lacquerwares, lacquer paintings, and so on.



Tea in a Covered-Bowl


Covered-bowl tea, “spokesperson” of the tea cafes in Chengdu, consists of “lid, bowl, and tray ” .

Covered-bowl tea has the capability of speaking: without shouting, the guest lifts the lid off aside,

hinting the tea-house waiter to add water, and on this signal will come the latter. If the guest wants to leave for a while, what he/she needs to do is lean the lid upon the tray. When the guest drinks enough, he/she will put the lid top down into the bowl, and with the message received, the waiter will take away the set and mop up the table; however, the guest will line up the lid, the bowl, and the tray if unsatisfied with the cafe today, then, not only the waiter, but also the boss, will come immediately to inquire and apologize. Factions of all walks of life that discuss secret matters will “embattle” the bowls on the table, the signification and indication of which only people on the “path” could understand.
