Zhuang Brocade tiny loom / cultural inheritance

Zhuang brocade is one of the four famous brocades in China, and it is also China's intangible cultural heritage. Because of the complex structure of the loom, the spread of the Zhuang brocade weaving art was hindered. The loom has been identified for its unique bamboo cage machine. "Zhuang Brocade Tiny Loom" uses an assembleable modular shaft design to replace the function of the bamboo cage machine. The design restores the characteristic weaving process and can reduce the size and simplify the structure of the loom, thereby lowering the threshold of the Zhuang brocade weaving culture and making it easier to be understood by the public.
