Bamboo light and rattan lamps weaving process

October 24 , 2022
As the birthplace of bamboo culture, China's bamboo weaving art is ancient and magical. It is a weaving art that integrates the essence of bamboo and the integrity of bamboo. As early as the Neolithic Age six or seven thousand years ago, our ancestors could use bamboo to weave utensils. In China, bamboo has experienced rituals, musical instruments,
It has become an aesthetic symbol of the image of a gentleman. Bamboo baskets, bamboo baskets and other production tools,

It has been a part of people's daily life since ancient times.

The bamboo weaving process can be roughly divided into three processes: bottoming, weaving and locking. During the weaving process,
The warp and weft weaving method is the main method. On the basis of warp and weft weaving, various techniques can also be interspersed.
Such as: sparse, insert, wear, cut, lock, nail, tie, cover, etc.,Variety of patterns and colors.Our factory weaving pattern as follows. For more designs, welcome to contact us.

Overview of Bamboo Weaving Materials and Processing Technology

There are many kinds of bamboo in China, about 40 genera and more than 400 species. Bamboo has strong adaptability and is mainly distributed in the southern provinces. The Pearl River Basin and the Yangtze River Basin are the most important. Fujian, Zhejiang, Jiangxi, Sichuan, Hunan, Guangdong and other provinces are all important. Bamboo production area. Although there are many bamboo species available for weaving in China, not all bamboo species are suitable for weaving. Many of the dwarf bamboo species are only suitable for landscape cultivation. Only the bamboo species with long culm, delicate bamboo quality and large yield are suitable for weaving. Among them, bamboo species with a large amount of weaving include Moso bamboo, Shuizhu, Danzhu, Cizhu and so on. Phyllostachys pubescens is mainly distributed in the Yangtze River Basin, Pearl River Basin, etc. It is the type with the largest amount of traditional bamboo weaving due to its thick walls, hard texture and thick stems; Phyllostachys edulis is mainly produced in the central Jiangnan area, with slender culms, delicate and soft bamboo; It has a wide growth range and is distributed in all provinces in the central region. Its fine texture and good toughness make it a good material for basket weaving; Ci bamboo has high stalks, long knots, and delicate meat. Sichuan, Yunnan and Guizhou are the most distributed and suitable for For weaving fine bamboo handicrafts. Through multiple processes such as bamboo cutting, strip processing, insect-proof and mildew-proof treatment, coloring, etc., it is finally processed into a material that can be weaved. Bamboo has good toughness and clear fibers, and can be processed into various specifications of bamboo chips and bamboo threads; at the same time, bamboo has high hardness and good support, and can be woven into a variety of practical shapes. Such as Sichuan porcelain body bamboo weaving, plane calligraphy and painting weaving, Liangping bamboo curtains, etc., Zhejiang Dongyang bamboo weaving animals, lamps, Xiangxi back baskets, Guangxi bamboo weaving small baskets, etc. At present, the processing of general bamboo material can be realized by machine, and only very thin silk still needs to be processed manually. Commonly used processing tools are saws, splitting knives, uniform splitting knives, bamboo splitters, etc., and frequently used equipments include slicers, layering machines, round bamboo stick wire drawing machines, etc. The auxiliary forming processes in traditional bamboo weaving generally include baking, nailing, assembling, and bundling. Baking is mainly used in the shaping of handles and slats, because most of the handles and slats are made of relatively thick bamboo sheets, which are not easy to bend and shape, and the bamboo slices are heated to form the desired curvature by baking. The nails are mainly used in the places where the clip, the handle and the main body are spliced. Assembling is relative to one-piece molding, and its components are separated, such as multi-sub-boxes, multi-layer carrying boxes, etc. The strapping is mainly used in the parts such as the edge and the handle. Auxiliary tools and machines commonly used in the bamboo weaving process are: scissors, generally used for trimming excess materials; knives, commonly used for processing materials, temporary trimming materials, etc.; awls, used for poking holes and leads; molds, used for batching and standardization Produced bamboo products, such as lantern molds, flower basket molds, etc. In addition, there is also a plane knitting machine. At present, plane knitting is the only knitting technique that realizes machine knitting. By setting the steps of simple geometric patterns, the machine can knit some simple knitting patterns cyclically, such as the plane hexagonal needle backrest of a rattan chair. , Herringbone pattern bamboo mats, etc. In addition to material processing technology and weaving technology, bamboo weaving also has modeling technology, color treatment technology, insect-proof and mildew-proof treatment, etc. The traditional and commonly used modeling methods include freehand weaving and weaving with the help of wooden molds. Modern common modeling methods include disposable foam molds, wooden molds, and iron frame keel molds. The primary color of bamboo is fresh and simple. In order to pursue simplicity and elegance, many bamboo utensils on the market are also color-treated by smoking and dyeing. Insect-proof and mildew-proof treatment is generally to dry the woven material and soak it in the potion. After the product is completed, it will continue to spray paint for protection.

Modeling structure and weaving texture structure of traditional bamboo weaving utensils

One-piece molding means that it is mainly made of one material from the beginning to the end, and basically each structure is woven together. 2 or more specifications of materials are woven or combined with other auxiliary processes, such as the picture on the right of the wooden vase.

Traditional bamboo weaving is a construction process from thread to surface, and then to body. The linear or sheet woven monomers are interspersed and interlaced with each other, and depend on each other in the interlacing, and achieve mechanical firmness through the interaction of elements. At the same time, the toughness of the braided material is very strong and can withstand large external forces. Therefore, the textured structure of the weave determines the mechanical properties of the utensils. In addition, different woven structures also have different visual effects. Studying the texture structure of traditional bamboo weaving utensils is of great significance for breaking through the traditional weaving structure and creating new shapes. The weaving patterns of traditional bamboo utensils include flat weaving patterns and three-dimensional weaving patterns.

The design of lamps and lanterns is not only for lighting effects, more and more people put lamps as decorative products in their homes, and the decorative and personalized characteristics of a bamboo woven lamp gradually prevail, and it may not be said to be the most beautiful. , but must be the most creative.
Unique decoration, and unique practicality. A bamboo woven lamp not only satisfies these two points, but also adds a warmth to the house.
