A craftsman's passion for creating cloth tigers

The creation of a cloth tiger requires many steps including dyeing cloth, cutting, modeling and painting. Skillful people can make a dozen of them every day and the price is cheaper than handmade embroidery ones.

"I want to use my efforts to develop the craft and let more people get to know cloth tigers. My biggest wish is to establish a museum on Huaiyang cloth tigers", Lei said. "Inheritors are not easy in every industry, and they usually pay more than achieve, while they all hope to better pass on their skills."
