3 pillars of Nanfeng Yarn Factory
In the 1970s, more than 40% of the labor force in Hong Kong engaged in garments and textiles. However, as the industry moved northward, the number of spinning mills that had reached 40 were so far removed. Only the red characters of Nanfeng Textile Co., Ltd. are more than half of the bay. century.
The 3rd generation of Nanfeng Group, Zhang Tianlin, joined the family business in 2013. In the following year, he announced the conservation plan.

However, Zhang Tinglin, the granddaughter of Nan Feng’s founder Chen Tingxi, is concerned about historical heritage and has spared no effort to revitalize Nanfeng. 4, 5, 6 factories.

Xu Zhuangde, general manager of Nanfeng Design Department, said that the yarn mill used to be the lifeblood of Nanfeng.

Linking and benefiting the community.” Xu’s team looked at the factory and the biggest problem was how to open up the space. At present, the yarn factory was originally placed on the ground iron gate and moved indoors as the reception decoration. The 6 factory has been demolished.

Xu Finger, 4, 5, and 6 factories are three independent factories, and now they must be connected to the unified The Mills.
