Traditional Cotton Textile Techniques

Chinese traditional textile technology has a long history. Since cotton was introduced from India in the 7th century, Chinese textile industry has changed from linen to cotton.

Inheritance significance

The data show that the three-year cotton temporary storage policy has made China control about half of the world cotton reserves and become the price lever affecting the world cotton market.

The analysis meeting revealed that after the state cancelled the cotton temporary storage and began to implement the cotton dump price of 17250 yuan/ton, the cotton market price was then accelerated to decline on the basis of the dump price. The spot price of third-class cotton has fallen to about 17,000 yuan/ton. Affected by it, international cotton prices also fell, such as the price of American cotton in the domestic market of 16500 yuan/ton, basically the same as domestic cotton prices.

After the operation, the gauze was left in the patient's body. What is the consequence?

"This is a serious medical accident. In the United States, hospitals can go bankrupt directly." Cui Jinhai, chairman of Zhijiang Omei, said.

How to be sure?

Dip the hair off the clothes, wash and disinfect the hands, put on shoes, hats, wear anti-static clothes, and then through the air shower room, the reporter finally entered Ogilvy's chip gauze surgical towel production workshop.

In the workshop, workers are sewing button-sized green chips into pieces of medical gauze. On the detection line, the "buzzing" sounds continuously to ensure that each chip surgical towel count is sensitive and effective.

"As soon as the instrument is swept, how many pieces of gauze go into and out of the operating room, and at a glance, it will be clear to put an end to the loss." Cui Jinhai said that the price of chip surgical towel is more than twice as high as that of ordinary surgical towel, and all of them are exported to the United States and the European Union.

Cotton textile industry is full of sorrow, and Ogilvy and Mexico how to advance against the trend?

"We started from Shenzhen as a foreign trade company. Our products are purchased domestically and sold to the international market." Cui Jinhai introduced that in 1997, Shenzhen Omei entered the industry, purchased Zhijiang Underwear Factory, and transferred all cotton medical textiles for export.

The large market of foreign demand will boost the industrial chain. Omeiza has invested in the establishment of bleaching, spinning, weaving, medical dressing, terminal product disinfection production lines, creating a complete industrial chain, increasing added value. Nowadays, Zhijiang Omei has become the leading exporter of medical textiles in China, with annual export volume exceeding 280 million US dollars.

Development status

On March 10-12, the Coordination Research Group of China Cotton Bank conducted a survey in Zouping, Gaoqing and Guangrao.

Enterprises seek to change and stabilize production by tapping potential, strengthening management, improving product quality and upgrading grade, and actively adjusting product structure. A small number of enterprises are on the verge of being eliminated and merged because of their poor operation in other industries. It is also recognized that cotton textile enterprises need to be cautious when they are involved in other industries. They should not blindly follow the trend through full investigation so as to avoid irreparable losses to enterprises.

"Sales prices have fallen, the target price of cotton in 2014 is lower than the temporary storage price of 600 yuan/ton in 2013, and the average annual income of corps workers has decreased by about 3800 yuan. Next, Xinjiang cotton faces the predicament of weak local digestibility and low enthusiasm of state-owned enterprises to buy domestic cotton." Liu Xinqi said.

Liu Xinqi suggested that Xinjiang should give full play to the advantages of high-quality cotton base, stabilize cotton production, and accumulate experience for the country to improve the price formation mechanism of agricultural products (000061, stock bars). In terms of price stabilization, the target price level for 2014 will be maintained unchanged, and the qualified cotton output of non-agricultural land will be included in the scope of subsidies to ensure the income of cotton farmers.
