The Hair Embroidery Research Institute and the Wenzhou University Folk Culture Museum that were visited this time occupy important positions in Wenzhouneze culture. Hair embroidery is one of the unique traditional crafts of the Han nationality in the Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces. These unique crafts use hair as the base material and combine it with painting and embroidery. One Exchange student Lin Hao said: “It’s my first time to realize hair embroidery. Before this visit, I never thought anyone could embroider with the hair. To be honest, this visit really enlarges my horizon.”
