How did African raffia grass become a lampshade material in China?
Raffia is a forage native to Africa, which is recognized by the international market for its strong toughness and extraordinary character. The grass has a smooth appearance and a refreshing interior, is not afraid of water and is extremely strong, so it is also regarded as a love grass, which means that people should treat love consistently and steadily. The grass can be woven into a variety of handicrafts rich in national characteristics, lighting ornaments, etc., especially as a raw material for lampshades widely used in China’s lighting industry.
Usually, Chinese will open a company in Africa to grow raffia, and then transport the raffia to China for processing to make a very tough raffia rope, and experienced Chinese craftsmen can use the raffia rope to weave various shapes of raffia lampshades and various handicrafts.
Moreover, China’s processing plants can also dye the raffia and process it into various colors of raffia, so that Chinese craftsmen and lampshade factories can produce various colors of raffia lampshades and handicrafts, which greatly broadens the creative space and imagination space of raffia, and can create a variety of different styles of raffia lampshades and handicrafts.
China’s processing plants also have a better ability to deep processing, that is, they can use the processing capacity of textile machines to weave raffia into rolls like cloth. Then, with a lamination machine, the raffia grass woven fabric is laminated on the polyester vinyl film, so that the raffia grass can be made into a hard-backed laminating lampshade material. In this way, China’s lampshade factories and craftsmen can use such new processed raffia grass materials to create new raffia grass lampshades, greatly expanding the creative space of raffia lampshades and making more raffia crafts.
Of course, you can also dye the raffia grass in advance, so that the woven raffia grass can have a variety of colors, so that you can also make a variety of fitted raffia grass lampshades.
It is precisely because China has such a deep processing ability that China can make a variety of different colors and shapes of raffia lampshades than European lampshade factories. Moreover, because the Chinese base is much larger than the population of Europe, there is a vast market and a large demand market, so that China can make lower cost raffia lampshade materials and raffia lampshades than Europe. With the support of large demand and technology, the progress of China’s raffia lampshade material industry chain has been further optimized, and the craftsmanship’s handicraft has been further exercised and optimized, and more newer and better raffia lampshades can be created, and more and better African raffia materials can be obtained, forming a positive cycle and promoting the progress and development of China’s entire raffia lampshade products.
