塑膠花 Plastic flowers

在上世紀六十至七十年代,塑膠花曾在西方世界紅極一時,由於需求量龐大,加上香港輕工業的盛行。香港在當時成為最大的塑膠花供應中心。塑膠花材料簡單但依賴人手完成,因此很多女性會直接從工廠索取材料,帶回家中與家人一同完成,以賺取更多收入,幫補家計。塑膠花不但是香港經濟發展的其中一個里程碑,同時亦代表了香港人刻苦耐勞的獅子山精神。

 

 

Plastic flowers were popular in western countries in 1960-70. Hong Kong was also once a large supplying center of plastic flowers. As most of the production process needed to be done by manpower, many woman workers brought materials from factories and made plastic flowers together with other family members at home. This kind of 「family-factory」 has been the collective memory of the grassroots at that time. Plastic flowers have been one of the signatures of old Hong Kong. It is not only because it was common among grassroots families, but also represents the spirits of hard-working and unremitting Hongkongers, which is known as “The Lion-Rock Spirit”.
