It was a long drive down the freeway, and the next stop was the packing factory.
It wasn’t exactly the kind of place you’d expect to find the kind.
But the factory had an unexpected guest: a woman with a camera.
A photo posted by @sophiexmas (@sophiesamagazine) on Mar 14, 2018 at 12:04am PDTThe factory is located in a sprawling, leafy industrial area in Shanghai.
It’s one of the world’s largest and most technologically advanced packaging factories.
Its workers, most of whom work for China’s state-run shipping company, assemble a variety of products like baby food, baby wipes, baby toys, and even baby clothes.
At the front of the building, the camera factory workers sat around a computer.
They were chatting with one another.
The camera was on.
This was going to be my first time at the factory.
I was excited, but also worried.
It would be the first time I’ve seen the camera and was nervous.
I’m in the first floor of the packing building.
The camera was rolling.
I was a little nervous about the camera because it was a camera, but at the same time I was really excited because I knew I’d finally seen something I never thought I’d see in my life.
There was a lot going on inside the building.
A couple of large conveyor belts and huge conveyor pipes were rolling by.
This is what happens when you put two huge, complicated machines together.
On the first day, the workers were busy assembling new packaging.
They were also installing the factory’s signature, plastic bottle caps, which are one of China’s most popular gifts.
Each of the four bottles was individually numbered and the company keeps track of each one.
For a long time, Chinese companies have been making boxes that are more like paper packages.
We use the same technology as everyone else.
We have a whole system for storing things, and we are also using it to keep track of things.
We don’t have a separate factory, and this is something we have to get used to.
The new boxes are packed in layers, and they’re stacked in the way that the Chinese have always done.
They are not attached to the wall.
Inside the packing room, there was a huge, white box, the same color as the packaging.
The workers were preparing for the next stage: the actual packaging.
Inside the packaging factory.
This is a container for the plastic bottle cap.
These bottles are so beautiful, and you can’t get enough of them.
And this is what the factory uses to make the bottles.
It has two machines in the middle of it.
It takes two of them to make one bottle.
All these machines are incredibly efficient.
Because the bottles are stacked on top of each other, the bottoms of the bottles can’t be exposed.
The bottles are sealed with plastic.
The plastic is then placed on top.
You see this in the pictures of the Chinese packaging factory that I’ve been showing you.
When I first saw that picture, I had no idea what the world of packaging was like.
What the factory did was make beautiful, colorful boxes.
The boxes were incredibly complicated.
One of the workers had a giant conveyor belt and it would pull a bottle up to the top of the conveyor, then it would move the bottle around to make sure the bottle was still in place.
Then it would be moved back down.
This was the process that made the boxes so beautiful.
The whole thing is built like a Lego set.
Every time the factory moved the bottle, it would just go up and down, up and up.
It was like a puzzle.
With these giant conveyors, each one of these machines would have to move around 400,000 bottles a minute.
After the process was finished, the factory workers put the bottles into the boxes.
They filled them, wrapped them in plastic, and then put them into the packaging machine.
From the box to the package: a whole new world of possibilities.
That’s the box factory, where the box for a newborn baby was packed.
In the middle is a baby bottle.
And in the bottom is a bottle of baby wipes.
Another baby bottle with a lot of plastic.
How do I know it’s a baby?
How do I feel?
A baby bottle that is so beautiful that you can see it from space.
So much beautiful packaging.
I just love it.
An empty box with a baby’s name on it.
The bottle factory.
It is a wonder.
Here’s the packaging of a baby.
It looks so beautiful and perfect.
She is so precious.
I love her so much.
Packing the box.
