Zhang Juanjuan, a member of Miao ethnic group, shows great interest in China's traditional batik techniques as her mother and grandmother are experts of batik. She inherited these techniques to spread this intangible cultural heritage skill in Southwest China's Guizhou province.

She returned home after graduation, registered batik art company and established a batik art studio in Guizhou.

She holds free workshops to teach batik techniques to villagers and helps them to make a fortune together.

She has also made improvements to avoid color loosing and products positioning during the process of applying traditional batik techniques into product development. Working with her friends, Zhang made more practical, environmental friendly and fashionable batik products such as clothing and handbags.

Zhang, a member of the post-1995 generation, said she hopes to help more people learn about batik techniques of Miao ethnic group and hopes more young people can join hands together to inherit the batik craftsmanship.
