Wu-xing-hong-qiThe traditional arts and crafts of China have won unique good reputations in the history of material culture and intangible cultural heritage of the various nationalities in the world.

China has a long history and glorious history in both arts and crafts. These are just two of the many jewels in China’s over five thousand-year culture. The arts and crafts are not only the embodiment of the people’s longing for aesthetic beauty for themselves and as gifts for others, but also great treasures for China and the world.
