However, a research opportunity has emerged during the Ph.D. research in the field of Chinses textile heritage: even if people believe innovation is the way to revive traditional textile craftsmanship, there is no systematic activation model that can not only recognize the values of the textile crafts, but also sustain the craft community’s capabilities and behaviors.
