Background: China's bamboo-ware has a long-standing history. Thanks to the attention of the Party and Government, bamboo-ware workshops have been set up in southern China's bamboo-producing provinces after liberation. This has ensured the constant development of bamboo handicrafts.
The craftsmen have inherited the traditional braiding methods and made steady improvements on them. They have created a number of new technological processes and designed many beautiful new patterns.
Articles woven from bamboo consist mainly of baskets, trays, vases and jars. They are art pieces as well as articles for everyday use. They are light and durable, simple yet pleasing to the eye. They are very much liked by the people.
