Also on Thursday, embroidery companies from Hinggan League's Horqin Right Wing Middle Banner signed cooperation agreements and placed orders with seven enterprises from cities such as Beijing, Hangzhou and Shenzhen. The order value totaled 64 million yuan ($9 million).

Official statistics show the embroidery industry in Horqin Right Wing Middle Banner has helped increase the annual income of 2,895 registered impoverished people by around 2,000 yuan ($290) per person in 2018. The embroidery industry currently provides work to 21,000 people in 173 villages in the banner.

Mongolian embroidery originated in the Qing Dynasty (1616-1912), and is now listed as a state-level intangible cultural heritage in China. The embroidery type is suitable for various fabrics such as cotton, linen, cashmere and silk. Its stitch patterns can be applied on clothing, bags, shoes and suitcases.
