Pastures New: Weaving a new generation

Daoming Bamboo Weaving is a national cultural heritage and a geographical indication product that was sold domestically and abroad during the 1980s and 90s. However, due to modern industrial development, bamboo products were gradually replaced, leading to local economic decline. Born to a family of bamboo weavers, Yang Longmei worked in civil aviation until a fire destroyed her family's bamboo workshop in 2013, prompting her to take over the family business. While studying the traditional technique, she designed and produced innovative products based on the current market trend. Not only has she managed to keep her family traditions alive, but she has also become a representative heritage inheritor. Now, she's readying her 6-year-old daughter for a future career like hers.
