Bazaar china’s collaboration with chinese traditional paper artists, after hundreds of hours of hand work a unique fashion collection is created with stunning visual impact. Paper-cut works have always been an important part of folk art in general, chinese people usually use it for decorative purposes during ceremonies such as weddings, the spring festival and moon festival to express their spiritual needs and good wishes. Personally, I find a nostalgic value in the form of this collection-paper cut, Sitting beside my grandmother watching her paper cutting away red paper to stick on the window during the week of welcoming the day of spring festival. I always was curious to find out what the next one would turn out like when she finished and I insisted on being the one to unfold the final cuts. To start with the paper needs to be folded in a certain way then cut then the final shape reveals itself. Whatever shapes, animals or flowers I like, as long as I can name it grandma could cut it out easily with a pair of scissors and a small knife. Everything was fun and you never quite new what to expect, but she always made it look so easy to achieve. There was no I can’t as you normally find when you get older. Love you grandma. miss you!
Here are the sort of paper cut works I remember my grandma could cut.
