Hebei Zanhuang Xueqin Cotton Products Development Co. Ltd, located in the thousand year old village Zanhuang, traces its origin to the Qing Dynasty from a familial tradition that started with Wang Hongyu: she led the rural women spinning and weaving work to produce military uniforms and shoes for the army. Wang Hongyu taught this craft to her daughter Qin Xichen.
Qin Xichen’s daughter Cui Xueqin witnessed her mother’s love for handmade textiles and persevering spirit. She decided to maintain and develop this craft as a heritage, and in 2007 established Hebei Zanhuang Xueqin Cotton Products Development Co.,Ltd. She collected old equipments in rural areas, repaired part of them and hired 6 experienced technicians to transmit her skills.
After 10 years of development, the company now owns 1 production factory, 6 textile-processing bases, 2000 traditional textile facilities of different kinds, and 500 acres of high-quality cotton planting bases.
