However, in such an era, the collision and integration of culture can easily make the Chinese lose themselves, and the traditional culture is undergoing a severe test. Therefore, as a cultural producer, it is our duty to extract high-quality parts and sublimate them

Whether it's the Chinese knot and weaving of handicrafts, or the lattice windows and screens in buildings, they all convey a unique aesthetic experience and life style. The wisdom of Chinese craftsmen makes the created things have gaps and blanks. They are like breathing life, and they are permeated and organically related with nature. Maybe this is a kind of delight, in local life, and the inspiration source of "DOUBLE HAPPINESS".
