Event Details

Restoration Intangible Cultural Heritage Experiential Studio will host an event on cotton fluffing on November 29 (next Sunday). 


Cotton fluffing is a traditional handicraft in China with a long history. The craftsman holds a bowstring in one hand and strikes the bowstring with a wooden hammer in the other hand. The making of a handmade cotton quilt takes such steps as fluffing, yarn drafting, flatting and sewing. The Technique of Cotton Fluffing was included in the seventh batch of Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Suzhou in April, 2020.


YOU WARM Handmade Quilt was founded by Ms. Huang Cuiping (黄翠萍). The history of her family’s handmade quilt can be traced back to the end of the 19th century. YOU WARM has insisted on making handmade quilts since its establishment. The quilt has to be fluffed more than 7,000 times and fixed with more than 3,000 yarns. It takes over three hours to make a soft, comfortable and close-fitting quilt. Jiang Xiaodong (蒋晓栋), son of Ms. Huang, will be invited to introduce the making process of a cotton quilt and give the audience a show-how during the event.


YOU WARM’s products will be on display and sale for one week at Suzhou ICH Shop. Welcome to the shop!
