第一次和棉花接触,是不小心剪坏了妈妈新买的棉布料给我当时的最爱芭比娃娃做衣服。那时我大概6岁的样子,妈妈大骂了我一顿,仍然怒气难消。然而这次“意外”并没有浇熄我对此类事物的热情,而且那时还不知道那是对什么的热情,也没有意识到那种激情就叫做热情。
10年后,我去了英国念书,高中时报了艺术这门课,经常需要动手剪剪贴贴,我也总喜欢用各种棉布包包裹裹在我的画册里。到了大学,去了伦敦,在圣马丁艺术学院读了时尚造型和服装设计的短期培训课。可以每天和各种面料打交道,让我对课程的一切都充满了热情和兴趣。那时我最喜欢的面料还是棉布,因为它是最天然也是穿起来最舒适的面料,同时运用在时尚方面也有多种可能性。
现在,我大三刚刚毕业,渴望尝试一些工作,积累一些经验,于是开始在与棉花相关的行业实习。开启了对中国棉花的宣传,并逐渐筹备起一些有意义的宣传活动。为的是向大家介绍并推广中国棉花,鼓励大家过更加健康和环保的生活。通过两周的实习,我增强了对棉花的认识,终于意识到其实棉花不知是一种单纯的作物或用于制衣的原料,它还代表着一种富有创意并且可持续发展的生活方式。棉花所引领的精神和生活也是一种时尚。被这种精神所影响着,我开始注意让自己以更加环保的方式去生活。把失宠的纯棉T恤衫缝补一番改造成环保袋,注意垃圾分类,尽量选购可回收材质的日用品,环保真的体现在生活中点点滴滴的小事。
我想我的棉花生活才刚刚开始,希望棉花给我的未来更多可能性。

My story of cotton began from my childhood, when I cut my mother’s favourite cotton fabric to make dresses for my little Barbie. At that time, I was about 6, and my mum was super angry at me.
Obviously, my passion hasn’t finished after that ‘accident’ in my future life. After I went to London for university, I had chance to join some fashion short courses in Central Saint Martins. I had so much fun in fashion styling and learning about fabrics etc., and my favourite fabric was still cotton, because it is the most natural and comfortable fabric that can be used for making clothes, and meanwhile it is inspiring and of good use for high fashion.
Lately, I started the internship at China Cotton Association. After finishing my 3rd year study at university, I consider myself of a mature person who manages to learn from past experiences, and desire for some working experience. Therefore, I joined China Cotton Association and decided to work there for one month during this summer. As far as I know, CCA has just started their propaganda of China cotton. Everyone here is working as a team to introduce and promote China cotton, in order to encourage a healthier and greener life for people. So far, I have already learned more about cotton through working. Cotton is not only to do with agriculture or a kind of fabric, it also represents a lifestyle of creativity and sustainability. It can present much more than we could possibly imagine. This idea of combining cotton and lifestyle together has inspired me a lot in many ways. For instance, I begin to try giving any used things another life by making some little changes on them.
Consequently, I believe my real cotton life has just begun, and I do hope I can continue this life in more ways in the future.
