Cultural heritage in Shanghai kept relevant by being adapted to modern products

Yang Zaimei, a national master in the ancient embroidery of the Miao ethnic minority, is a busy woman nowadays as China steps up its campaign to promote and perpetuate iconic heritage. Yang not only teaches apprentices every week, but she also advises a domestic luxury brand on design and embroidery patterns for fashion bags, clothing and shoes. Her studio, which she operates with her daughter and apprentices, has gained international attention, thanks to an ongoing training program. Under the project, those with inherited traditional skills are sent to study in domestic universities for a month. There, they learn how to adapt ancient talent into modern products that will keep the heritage alive in contemporary society.
