CHANGSHA [url=http://www.airmax97kopen.be/heren...-max-97-og-gs-groen-zwart-kopen.html]Heren Air Max 97 OG GS Groen Zwart Kopen[/url] , Feb. 8 (Xinhua) -- It is not common in China to see a young man doing embroidery.

But Jiang Tongwan, in his 20s, owns a workshop in Hunan Province. He is one of the first 11 male vocational school graduates major in Hunan style embroidery.

"Many people did't understand my choice," he said. "I would then tell them that Hunan embroidery is part of our traditional culture which we should pass on."

Chinese embroidery boasts a long history of several thousand years. Xiang Xiu, or Hunan embroidery, is one of the four major styles. It features light and shading that give the picture a three-dimensional effect.

The industry peaked in the 1970s and 1980s but began dwindling after an embroidery plant in Changsha, which employed about 30,000 craftsmen [url=http://www.airmax97kopen.be/heren-air-max-97-og-gs-zilver-wit-kopen.html]Heren Air Max 97 OG GS Zilver Wit Kopen[/url] , closed down. The revenue of the plant was more than one million yuan (about 152,200 U.S. dollars).

"The craftsmen worked at home," recalled Zeng Yingming, general manager of the Hunan Embroidery City Group. "Almost every household had someone doing embroidery."

The situation changed in the 1990s, when many plants, including the one in Changsha, closed.

"There were many causes for the depression," said He Chun [url=http://www.airmax97kopen.be/kopen...n-air-max-97-kpu-tpu-zwart-goud.html]Heren Air Max 97 KPU TPU Zwart Goud Kopen[/url] , an expert in cultural industry. "Fake products, obsolete designs and high prices were the main cause, which resulted from lack of intellectual property awareness and shortage of talents."

In the worst days, the Hunan Embroidery City Group had only two workshops and four workers.

Zeng then cut the production of traditional ornamental pieces by 80 percent and turned to manufacturing articles for daily use.

"Capes to Spain, shoes to Italy, dresses to Japan and school uniforms to the Republic of Korea," he said. "We do everything to meet the needs of our customers." Daily use commodities now account for up to 95 percent of the company's products.

After finding that local people liked roses at an exhibition in Spain, Zeng changed the traditional embroidery pattern of peony to rose.

Now the group has grown into a modern enterprise with more than 10 [url=http://www.airmax97kopen.be/kopen...n-air-max-97-kpu-tpu-blauw-rood.html]Heren Air Max 97 KPU TPU Blauw Rood Kopen[/url] ,000 workers and an output of 1.5 billion yuan a year. Its products are sold to more than 10 countries. The export stands at about 30 million U.S. dollars last year.

The reform was not without criticism.

A Xiang Xiu master, who declined to be named, told Xinhua that it was a pity for an art form with a history of 2,000 years to be used for cheap commodities.

"I really don't want to see the brand of Xiang Xiu lose its taste," the master said.

"The traditional art form is not in the museum," Zeng said. "For the traditional handicraft art, the only way to survive is to combine art with marketing, develop new products that can meet a variety of demands nowadays [url=http://www.airmax97kopen.be/heren...-max-97-kpu-tpu-zwart-wit-kopen.html]Heren Air Max 97 KPU TPU Zwart Wit Kopen[/url] ," Zeng said.

Success of the companies generated job opportunities.

To provide workers for embroidery companies like Zeng's, the Hunan Embroidery Research Institute and the Hunan Arts and Crafts Vocational College helped train traditional skills.

Wu Jianmei, a 56-year-old Hunan embroidery master, has taught more than 7,000 people in the past three decades.

"From color matching to threading the needles, I taught them everything," she said. "I would like to see them create their own masterpieces, so that the art form can be passed on."

THE HAGUE [url=http://www.airmax97kopen.be/heren...max-97-kpu-tpu-zwart-rood-kopen.html]Heren Air Max 97 KPU TPU Zwart Rood Kopen[/url] , July 11 (Xinhua) -- PSV has sold captain Georginio Wijnaldum to Newcastle United, the Dutch club announced on Saturday.

The 24-year-old midfielder underwent a medical and signed a contract for five years at the Magpies. According to Dutch football magazine Voetbal International the transfer fee is around 20 million euros (22.3 million U.S. dollars). Earlier this summer PSV already received 27 million euros from Manchester United for the 21-year-old forward Memphis Depay.

"Unfortunately we are losing a wonderful player and a fantastic person, but he deserves this move," technical manager Marcel Brands told on the PSV website. "He leaves as captain of the Dutch champions. We and he can be proud of that."

Dutch international Wijnaldum, who signed a contract extension with PSV until 2018 last summer, joined PSV from Feyenoord in the summer of 2011. He won the Dutch Super Cup (2012), the Dutch Cup (2012) and last season the Dutch league title. In total he played 154 official matches for PSV, in which he scored 57 times.

NEW DELHI [url=http://www.airmax97kopen.be/heren-air-max-97-zwart-zilver-kopen.html]Heren Air Max 97 Zwart Zilver Kopen[/url] , June 7 (Xinhua) -- India, to complete the process of joining the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) during the upcoming Astana summit, will play an active role in enhancing cooperation among member countries, an analyst has said.

"Since becoming an observer country of the SCO in 2005, India has been seriously participating in the activities of SCO and aspiring to become a full member for a long time," said Punchok Stobdan, a senior fellow at the Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses of India, in a recent interview with Xinhua.

The south Asian country has so many reasons to join the SCO and get direct connection with the Central Asian region [url=http://www.airmax97kopen.be/heren-air-max-97-2017-retro-goud-kopen.html]Heren Air Max 97 2017 Retro Goud Kopen[/url] , said Stobdan, also former Indian ambassador to Kyrgyzstan.

India has enjoyed long-standing relations with the Central Asia region for thousands of years, so it wants to revive this relationship, he said, adding that the country has historical, cultural, political and economic reasons to be part of the organization.

India has maintained good bilateral relationship with SCO members respectively and cooperated with them in political and economic fields, as well as in capacity building [url=http://www.airmax97kopen.be/heren...-max-97-2017-retro-zilver-kopen.html]Heren Air Max 97 2017 Retro Zilver Kopen[/url] , Stobdan said.

Stability of this region is very important to India, he underlined. "We don't want Central Asia to become another Afghanistan, Syria or Iraq."

"Central Asia is also rich in natural resources, energy and gas, India wants to take advantage of energy supplies," he said.

India and Pakistan, currently observer states of the SCO, are expected to gain full.
