You Jinhua, Zhenfeng, Guizhou: the inheritor of ancient paper making

in the Longjing, Banpo and Renchao areas of Xiaotun Township, Zhenfeng County, there is still a complete and Ancient Papermaking Process with bark and cactus as raw materials. The 72 track papermaking process is simple and natural, which is completely consistent with that described in Song Yingxing's book "natural things", and is known as the living fossil of ancient papermaking. Among them, There is a farmer who has been making a living from Ancient Papermaking for generations, and he is still inheriting this traditional and ancient papermaking technology. He is you Jinhua, a villager from Longjing Village, Xiaotun Township, Zhenfeng county. You Jinhua's traditional white cotton paper processing technology seems to be very simple, but the operation is extremely complex. There are 72 processes, such as peeling, soaking, kneading, beating and mixing, which are simple and natural. Each process plays an important role and is indispensable. The production mainly relies on curtains, shelves, Brown Brushes and other tools, and handicraft is used in the production. The raw material of white cotton paper is mainly textured leather. In the production process, lime is first used to corrode the textured leather to make it soft and extract plant fiber from it; Then coal fire is used to cook the leather corroded by lime, dissolve the plant fiber, and disperse and bleach the raw materials with plant ash. Then, after multiple processes such as copying, drying, stacking, etc., the finished paper is formed. In the process, water, cactus and other mixing materials are also added. Due to the processed white cotton paper 1. Microcomputer display, the full Chinese menu operation preserves the original traditional process, and has the characteristics of good toughness, water absorption and strong corrosiveness. The scientific and technological innovation of the project has not yet formed a new kinetic energy after reaching production capacity, and its preservation period can reach thousands of years. In the homes of local people, we can see that the genealogy that has been inherited for hundreds of years is still clearly visible

The production technology of white cotton paper processed by you Jinhua has been introduced into Xiaotun since the late Ming Dynasty and early Qing Dynasty. So far, it has a history of more than 300 years. In hundreds of years, this ancient and natural traditional technology has created brilliant achievements. In the 29th year of the Republic of China, white cotton paper was invited to participate in the Nanjing Saibao fair, and was highly praised by all parties attending the meeting and won the winning prize, thus making the traditional technology of white cotton paper widely spread, The sales volume of the products soared, and they were sold to Guangdong, Guangxi, Yunnan, Sichuan and other parts of the country. At the same time, they were quickly sold to the United States, Vietnam and other countries. After the reform and opening up, you Jinhua, who has depended on papermaking for a living for generations, inherited the traditional craft of his father's generation, constantly improved the production process, and worked hard to improve the quality of products, so that ancient papermaking has been better inherited in his hands. In the 2006 colorful Guizhou tourism commodity design competition, the southwest division of Guizhou won the grand prize in one fell swoop, and was successfully shortlisted for the second round of Guizhou Province

however, with the continuous economic and social development of technical indicators such as the sampling frequency is 50 times the working frequency (at this time, the peak capture error does not exceed 0.2%), ancient papermaking has been affected to a certain extent, and some production and processing households in the original village have also stopped the ancient papermaking process. However, only farmers, mainly you Jinhua, continue this traditional process. In order to perpetuate the ancient papermaking technology, the local Party committee and government also successfully declared the ancient papermaking technology as the first batch of national intangible cultural heritage in 2006

you Jinhua said that with the care and support of the local Party committee and government, we should continue to do a good job in Ancient Papermaking and inherit the traditional craft of Ancient Papermaking forever
