As a designer and embroiderer at a traditional handicraft center in the city, Rahman has not only designed more than 300 products featuring traditional Hami embroidery but trained over a hundred people as part-time embroiderers and helped lift them out of poverty.

"Both our embroidering skills and lives are getting better and better," he said. The center, which was launched in 2016, has developed more than 1,300 embroidery products including earphones and notebooks. It received a total of 1,750 orders of embroidery products in 2018, which were worth more than a million yuan ($145,400).

"I like the traditional embroidery, and I will do my best to improve my skills since it can help me increase my income," said Rossaguri Iburain, a 30-year-old part-time embroiderer in the township of Wubao in the city.
