LAVISHY Akina Collection Wholesale Embossed Vegan Wallets, Coin Purses & Luggage Tags
LAVISHY loves the art of paper cutting--a very distinctive visual art of Chinese handicrafts.
Dated back to 6th century when it was created, paper cutting gained great popularity from the 7th to 13th century as paper became more affordable. Paper-cutting became one of the most important types of Chinese folk art. It spread to the rest of the world in the 14th century, with different regions adopting their own cultural styles. They were often used to decorate doors and windows, so the light from the inside would shine through the negative space of the cut out to create moving pictures with poetic beauty. Usually, the artworks are made of red paper, as red is associated with festivities and happiness in Chinese culture.
Paper cutting is one of the most popular decorative Chinese handicrafts because of its low cost and artistry: the main cutting tools are simple: paper and scissors or an engraving knife, but clever and deft craftspeople are remarkably good at cutting in the theme of daily life. As a reflection of its philosophical origins, paper cutting is as comprehensive as it is attractive. Moreover, folk paper cutting conveys the content and nature of traditional culture with its own particular language. Normally paper-cutting artwork is used on festivals like Spring Festival, weddings and childbirth. Papercuts always symbolize luck and happiness.
Today, paper cutting still stands out for its unique charms: exacting lines and ingenious patterns which are all hand-made. In 2009, it was inscribed on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
Inspired by paper cutting, Akina collection was designed and launched in 2003.
