The Dawenkou lace technique, which originated from the Dawen River banks in Daiyue district, Tai'an, Shandong province, is a typical representation of traditional Chinese embroidery.
Dawenkou lace is a decorative openwork pattern made of cotton thread, hemp thread, and other textiles that is embellished or knitted.
The Dawenkou lace technique generates a wide range of goods that demand a lot of time and effort. As a result, materials were frequently supplied to people to build openwork products in the past, and the products were sold collectively.
The technique has been stepping up to achieve industrialization and contribute to rural vitalization. Dawenkou lace patterns are popular these days as decorations, cultural and creative products, fashionable consumer goods, and art collections.
The Dawenkou lace pattern product has built a steady supply and sales relationship with many countries over the years, and has garnered appeal particularly in European, North American, and Southeast Asian countries.
It has been playing a role in spreading Chinese traditional culture and promoting the culture of Chinese traditional arts and crafts to the world.
