Crow Magazine Vol.4- Get Back to Basics


Straw weaving, bamboo weaving and different metal products are the results of human intelligence. They are mostly made of natural materials and handmade, and are regularly used in daily work and life, helping people hold and store different stuff. What is disappointing, however, is that those original crafts are gradually vanishing from life and are replaced by plastic products. A lot of crafts like these don’t manage to survive and get passed. 

The old weaved tools is harder and harder being seen nowadays, partly because of the lack of raw materials, partly because people no longer regard them as fine-looking. But in my eyes, these old tools are extremely simple yet beautiful. I hope that those traditional tools can be accepted and appreciated by more people.
