Yellow grass weaving

Yellow grass weaving in Jiading has a history of more than 1,000 years. Yellow grass woven products became a tribute to the imperial court as early as the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 -907). Using wild yellow grass as raw material, the woven products are light in color and tough in texture and can be dyed.

Yellow grass can be woven into diverse varieties and novel patterns. Colorful and exquisite, yellow grass woven products are not only naturally and artistically beautiful but also have practical value.

In 1953, yellow grass slippers won an art medal at the Leipzig Trade Fair. In 1956, the Central Studio of News Reels Production produced a film about Jiading's yellow grass weaving. In 1957, the grass weavers from Xuhang attended the Congress of Chinese Craftsmen and were received by Party and government leaders.
