Ceramics used to be the first bridge connecting two countries. In the 17th century, the Dutch East India Company sailed the flourishing maritime silk route to China to obtain porcelain. As the Europeans were feverishly searching for Jingdezhen’s porcelain which was decorated in blue on a white background, potters in Delft started to imitate it.
The imitation was later developed into Delftware, which is still the pillar industry in the city, and has been seen as a symbol of Holland.
Royal Delft, the only remaining factory of more than 30 earthenware factories that were established in Delft in the 17th century, has more than 130,000 visitors every year and about 6000 are tourists from China.
After hundreds years of development, Delftware now is no longer an imitation of Chinese porcelain but has its own style and special techniques. But the connection between the two products still exists.
