About This Project

My name is Mao Binghua and I’m 22 years old, I come from China, Zhejiang province.

I am now studying at “Istituto Europeo di Design ” in Milan, My own label named “Nella folla”.
My topic is about the fisherman, the reason for this topic is that I come from an island in china, named Zhoushan, where there are 1390 islands and generations after generations of people fish for a living.

Fishermen thus become the most common profession on the island.
As I grew up, more and more relatives who used to be occupied in fishing industry quit their original jobs, young people mastering the traditional skills of fishing became fewer and fewer and
the traditional manual fishing was seen replaced by machinery methods. I hope through this design, I can keep down the original memory I have on fishermen.
