Approximately 100 Miss World contestants discovered the silk works of Wensli Group, the largest silk maker in Hangzhou, on a visit to Zhejiang province on Oct 27.
Chairman of Wensli Group, Li Jianhua, extended a warm welcome to the international visitors, presenting them with the charming silk scarfs for which Wensli is well known.
Wearing the red scarfs, the contestants visited a Wensli silk culture museum to learn about the origin and development of the traditional fabric and viewed the processing of Wensli's silk products.
At a later discussion, tour facilitators taught contestants various ways to tie the scarfs. The visitors showed interest in the history of Chinese silk and a fondness for the scarfs.
Wensli Group has focused on keeping traditional Chinese textile manufacturing alive for over three decades, and is today dedicated to promoting Chinese silk culture to the world, garnering considerable global attention. Numerous national and international leaders and dignitaries have worn Wensli garments on formal occasions, including the 2014 APEC meeting in Beijing. Wensli was also a major provider of silk products for the 2016 B20 and G20 summits in Hangzhou.
