  "Weft-to-latitude cotton plants see the clothes and quilts of Ci 'en, and the sound of the navigation machine on the ladder mountain makes it fragrant for thousands of years." When you walk into Huang Daopo Memorial Park, you can feel full of admiration when such a couplet comes into view. What is the cause of Jingtianwei? It's brave to pull up the mountain and inspire the world, and it's etiquette for 3 thousand disciples to preach the road, so it's a great virtue to be clothed in the world. As the originator of textile technology innovation, Huang Daopo's story has been circulated among the people for a long time.

  China is a big agricultural country. "Rice, grain and millet, wheat and millet, these six valleys are eaten by people." China's raw materials for making clothes are mostly silk, kudzu and hemp. Lei Zu (the wife of the Yellow Emperor) invented sericulture and was honored as the "first silkworm". Her silk reeling and weaving techniques brought silk to the world. However, silk fabrics are expensive, and under strict grading regulations, non-civilians can wear them. Although the people of Ge and Ma can afford it, the effect of keeping out the cold is not ideal. Therefore, the prevalence of breathable and warm cotton is reasonable. However, due to the limitation of technical conditions, the efficiency of cotton weaving into cotton cloth is not high.

  At the end of the Song Dynasty and the beginning of the Yuan Dynasty, the appearance of a girl surnamed Huang in Wunijing (now Huajing Town, Xuhui District) in Songjiang Prefecture changed all this. Miss Huang, that is, Huang Xiaoniang, is said to have been a child bride. Unable to bear the insults and beatings of her in-laws and husbands, she secretly climbed a big wooden boat moored on the Huangpu River in Huang Xie and drifted to Yazhou (Hainan Island) from then on. Here, she worked with friends of Li and Hui nationalities, learned unique textile techniques and exchanged ideas with each other. After hard study and continuous improvement, she soon became a skillful weaver.

  Time flies, a shuttle travels through the universe. Over the past 30 years, Huang Xiaoniang has already become Huang Daopo. But her hometown is in a dream, and her hometown is still good in the dream. She finally returned to Wunijing by boat. After returning home, she combined Li's experience with local production practice, developed new textile tools and invented new textile methods, and "three-spindle spinning" greatly improved work efficiency. She taught this technology to her neighbors without reservation, and helped the local people quickly master the textile technology. The "Wunijing quilt" was covered all over the world, and people respectfully called her "Xianmian". In the simple desire of China people to have enough to eat and wear warm clothes, the realization of wearing warm clothes is thanks to Huang Daopo.

  The river is colorful, and the warm aftertaste of this moist and beautiful fireworks; Neighborhoods in the streets and lanes inherit the human relations connected by one vein. In those days, Huang Daopo started from Huangpu River, starting from Shanghai and ending in Hainan, the coast of the East China Sea and the water of the South China Sea. With water as the medium, he wrote the later textile culture.

  You will give me a gift of peach, and I will reciprocate with Chiung Yao. The textile technology that Huang Daopo learned from ethnic minorities, after intensive research, promoted the overall development of cotton textile technology in China at that time. Three-spindle spinning became the technical proof that China's textile industry was leading the world. And all this is a blend of culture, an accessible atmosphere of clouds and moonlight, and a compassionate heart of heaven and sea; This warmth is the gene of being good as water and the spirit of pioneering and innovating. Still water is deep, it is indisputable, water moistens everything, what flows is the quality of Xuhui, and what stretches is picturesque.
