风吹日晒，会让皮革褪色老化，却让木材愈加沉稳。经久触摸，会使皮革枯燥无光，却令木材生出油润的包浆。木材成物之后，就开始了另一种生命。它跟随你，历经岁月，被缓缓注入能量。一只精细打造的木制手包，或许如同那些名贵的古典家具，在伴随一辈甚至几辈人之后，变成别有灵性的物件。DMLJ: From architecture to wooden bags, retrieving the lost memories of the Tang Dynasty
Editor Note: A culture is born in a period of history, ancient and ingenious. Combining oriental charm with Western woods, forming a classical elegance of Tang. The beauty had been ignored for thousands of years. From the architecture design to the packaging design of precious collections, Qi, the founder of DMLJ, values the unique lifespan of packaging as a product. From the exquisite packaging to customized wooden bags, Qi continues to make bold attempts based on his solid experiences and knowledges. He combines the contemporary technology with the handicraft, and breaks the cognition of the application of traditional materials. The bag takes you back to the origin of luxury and stands as a unique signature in the banquet.
The beauty of China Tang Dynasty (618-907) is with a familiar feeling of strangeness, which is through time and distance without violation in the modern era. The Oblique lines on the bag are in retro and Western style but with tranquil Oriental charm. The patterns origin from the lute cherished by the Royal Family of Japan,which is the gift from Chinese Emperor of Tang Dynasty. It is the national treasure of cultural exchange thousands years ago.
All the unique aesthetic inherited from ancient artifacts are hidden in every grinding line and flower mosaic pattern of our products, together with modern minimalist look.
A small exquisite hand-made bag decorated with the imperial Tang lady. The central badge with 9 different types of wood mosaic, represented the famous painter Zhou Fang’s masterpiece ‘Tang Lady’ in the Tang Dynasty.
The blossoming whirlpool Bubinga looks like the peony bloom on the lady’s crimson robe. The upper part is made of the shining Red wood, creating a graceful translucent sense. The lower part is carefully made of Ashtree wood with the natural wooden trend of the image of jogging gesture
All the wood that made into use, are at least more than hundred years old. Their rings stand for the change of time. A few hours storm or three or five years of drought, will change the grain’s pattern. If the leather texture presents the end of life, then, the piece of grain, carries the full meaning of life.
We’ve tried different fine wood around the world, to combine into a brand-new style. We reduced the thickness of the bag to the limit of the wood material and reinforced with the carbon fiber, and cut the hard wood into stripes and place in order on the cloth, in order to make the thin and stable shutter, to depict the Pipa mosaic pattern from Tang Dynasty…
Exposed to the sun and wind, the leather will fade, but the wood will be more calm. After the wood is made into some-thing, it begins its new life. It follows you, through the years, with slowly injected energy. A fine hand-made wooden bag will turn to a spiritual object passing down by generations.
