A businesswoman from Longshan, Xiangxi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture in central China's Hunan Province, has turned folk weaving into a prosperous industry in her hometown and helped locals boost their incomes.


Tan Yanlin, 33, returned to her home to take care of her aunt in 2009. Having been attracted by folk traditional arts and handicrafts, she decided to establish a company to sell handwoven products.


In 2011, Tan set up the Rebamei Handwoven Products Company in the county and offered free training to local people.


Meanwhile, the company established a workshop for poverty alleviation, attracting many so-called "left-behind" women, and their handmade products such as shoes, hats, clothes and bonsai have since become very popular among customers.
