Silk Flora
蠶絲金工系列

 

2015年夏季,當時從事服裝設計的 Venisa Yao 在旅行中,意外地發現台灣傳統「纏花工藝」對此印象深刻,在因緣際會下認識老師傅,談話間向設計師娓娓道來:「纏花的技術斷層問題,甚至許多台灣人未曾聽聞這項國寶級的文化技藝… … 。」話語中滿是感慨與不捨。靈光乍現,設計師:「我願意學,請問您願意教我嗎?」,聽見年輕設計師願意花上遙遠路程去學一項傳統工藝,老師熱情的一口答應。

2016年,設計師創立品牌 Re-Re 在台北迪化街開業。
遇見許多顧客詢問設計師身上配戴的自製項鍊,經由設計師改良設計,有別於傳統風格,並將之命名為「 蠶絲金工系列 (Silk Flora) 」,賦予古老技藝嶄新風貌並延續傳統工藝,此系列深受顧客的支持與愛戴,在迪化街時期蠶絲金工系列販售超過二十國觀光客。

蠶絲金工系列在 2018-19年,連續2年多次獲選為台灣外交禮物,贈與給美國、俄羅斯、聖克里斯多福、聖文森。多次在國際場合中代表台灣,2020年初,Re-Re 設計師 Venisa Yao 獲選為德國慕尼黑國際工藝大展台灣代表隊之一,將獨特的蠶絲金工系列推向國際舞台,此外,蠶絲金工系列中的 件產品(百合胸針、三葉耳環)榮獲文化部認證為 2020年臺灣優良工藝品此一殊榮。

當台灣傳統工藝面臨無人承襲的困境,設計師發揮專長重新詮釋文化精髓,同時傳遞品牌精神「創新、在地化」,蠶絲金工系列 (Silk Flora) 產品全是由設計師手工製作,希望讓顧客感受到那份手作的溫度。然而,當年老師教授纏花技術給設計師,是為了傳承台灣傳統文化技藝,並且堅持學費分文不取,在此衷心地感謝這位無私大方的女士。

In the summer of 2015, when Venisa was on her art trip , she accidentally found the Taiwanese traditional craft called : ” Chan-Hua “ (entwining  flower)and was totally inspired by it.
“this unique traditional craft has declined over the years, and just few young people knew this antique art.”said the master. “I’d be love to learn this craft, would you teach me ?”Venisa answered. The master was happy to pass down this traditional Taiwanese craft to the designer. In 2016, Re-Re was established a first store in Da Dao Cheng.

Different form traditional craft ,Silk Flora collection is given a new look to a monden style , This collection has been popular among the customers.

Re-Re Silk Flora collection has been sold to over 20 countries and was honored to be the diplomatic present to Russia and the U.S.A in 2018 and St. Christopher.St Vincent in 2019.

Facing the difficulty of the decline of Taiwanese traditional craft, Venisa practices her own expertise and redefines this traditional art. she hold to core value“Novelty and Localization“.
To share the uniqueness of Re-Re, all products are handmade by the designer.

Last but not least , Venisa would like to place my acknowledgement to the master of Taiwanese Chan-Hua craft. With her guidance, not only did Re-Re is able to launch Silk Flora collection, but the traditional Taiwanese craft went on . Thank you !
