Ink as a unique art form in China, after thousands of years of inheritance, it is no longer a simple form of painting. For us, ink painting is a heavy encyclopedia of Chinese civilization. It not only shows us the process of Chinese civilization, but also expounds the ancient oriental aesthetic philosophy. We can find the wisdom of our ancestors and their cognition and understanding of things at that time. Nowadays, with the prosperity of our country, we increasingly hope to show a more comprehensive symbol of the Chinese nation in the forest of nations in today's world. Therefore, Chinese-style clothing has sprung up all over the world. But how to make Chinese style clothing can better develop and continue, this is an important problem that we are facing at present.
