In the southern part of the county we live in,rush weaving has been a vital local industry during the past decades.With the impact of speedy development in fossil-based material such as rayon and nylon,however,the local rush weaving industry is seriously endangered and in gradual decline.Trying to acquaint the world with this used-to-be-prosperous industry,we have built this website to introduce the various aspects of rush weaving.In addition to data collection and field research,we have also interviewed several rush weaver masters,who have been still working on keeping and promoting this precious handicraft industry.We sincerely hope that,with this website,more people can have a better knowledge of the beauty of rush weaving.
