The wood carvers at Sanyi are among Taiwan's best, and mostly use the island's camphor wood. Temple gods, folk scenes, dragons, and even abstract sculptures are turned out in open workshops. • http://www.sinica.edu.tw/tit/culture/1096_Hakka.html
Hakka handicrafts especially reveal the Hakka stress on simplicity and practicality.
By contrast, most of the Hakka clothing was made of cotton; their designs are straightforward, and the outfits tend to be monochromatic. A thrifty, tight-knit community with a strong work ethic, the clothes of the Hakka people reflect their different lifestyle and traditions.
Introduction • The "Hakkas", whose name means guest people, speak the Hakka dialect. Coming mainly from Fujien, Jianxi and the basins of the East, North and Han rivers in Guangdong, they usually live in or near the hills in Taiwan. The practical and thrifty ways of the Hakkas can be best illustrated by their style of clothing which shows a high degree of simplicity and little adorement.The shanku is the outfit most commonly worn by both men and women. Plain colors, usually blue and black, were usually preferred. • http://club.ntu.edu.tw/~hakka/edress/doc.htm
