The ancient tradition of silk farming could be revived at Turpan in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region as part of a project to restore exquisite clothing and other items up to 2 nike air vapormax flyknit grises baratas ,000 years old found in ancient tombs.

The silk products include handcrafted kerchiefs with flower and rhombus patterns, and handbags, and are evidence of how Turpan prospered as a key stop on the ancient Silk Road.

"The unearthing of the silk products from the tombs shows how valuable the silk trade was and how it benefited the people along the road," said Xu Dongliang, deputy head of the Technological Protection Institute at the Academy of Turpan Studies.

Most of the clothes were used to dress the bodies in the tombs and have been damaged as the remains decayed. Experts at the institute face the difficult task of restoring the items. They plan to return 33 of them to their former glory this year with help from German experts.

Now, as the country promotes the Silk Road Economic Belt project as a way of generating new wealth nike air vapormax flyknit azul baratas , the source of Turpan's original prosperity looks set to make a comeback.

The academy plans to encourage farmers to produce silk so it can obtain the special type needed for the restoration project.

Silk farming took place in Turpan from the time of the Han Dynasty (206 BC to AD 220) until 1972, when the authorities stopped buying the fiber from farmers because the development of the country's textile industry meant local silk products could not compete on price.

"We have to use silk produced by the silkworm that was formerly cultivated in Turpan to restore the relics because it bears a greater similarity to the ancient silk we have recovered," Xu said.

The institute previously tried to restore the items with silk from Zhejiang province, but the two types did not match. "The city still has a large number of ancient mulberry trees, and this has made the restoration of silk farming possible," Xu said. The trees are the sole source of food for silkworms.

The project could also benefit from a citywide program to boost forestry coverage nike air vapormax flyknit blancas baratas , in particular the number of mulberry trees. Archaeological findings indicate that the planting of the trees dates back more than 3,000 years.

Turpan unveiled a plan last year to plant 3,333 hectares of mulberries by the end of 2020 in an effort to improve the city's environment. As of last month, 23,000 trees had been planted.

Su Fuli, office director at Turpan's municipal forestry bureau nike air vapormax pure platinum baratas , said the project is intended primarily to protect the city from sandstorms, since mulberries thrive in the city's dry environment and high temperatures.

The trees also give farmers an additional source of income as the fruit can be sold. However, he said, the authority has no plans to encourage farmers to take up silk farming.

Xu said the archaeological evidence shows that silk products and silk farming spread along the road.

"The findings show that the city used to be a major hub for transportation as well as cultural exchanges," he said.

In Turpan, the combination of low rainfall nike air vapormax inneva baratas , high temperatures and arid air was a key element in the preservation of relics, especially tombs and the mummies they contain.

NANCHANG, Sept. 9 (Xinhua) -- More than 50,000 teachers with over 20 years of service in rural parts of east China's Jiangxi Province were honored at an awarding ceremony on Wednesday, the eve of National Teachers' Day.

The provincial education bureau gave certificates to the teachers, most of whom struggle with a lack of resources in their remote outposts. "This is to pay our respect to those who selflessly dedicate themselves to education in the countryside nike air vapormax utility baratas ," said bureau official Cheng Yuqiu.

"It is the best acknowledgment of my work," said Li Yucai, the only teacher for about 10 students at Gaoyang School in Niwan Village of Tanying City.

Li, 59, has taught in Niwan village since he was 20 years old. In a story typical of the education gap between urban and rural China, he has witnessed a flow of teachers and students away from the village to larger townships.

A similar situation is found at the school in Sanwan Village of Wuning County nike air vapormax moc baratas , where student numbers have decreased from 100 to 10 in 10 years. Lack of teachers is the main cause.

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on Tuesday met with model urban and rural teachers, commending the dedication of China's 3.3 million rural teachers while promising more government support for their schools.

This followed a State Council plan published in June to target the problem. It called for new channels for recruiting village teachers, and better living standards and pay once they are in the jobs.

"More spiritual and material rewards should be given to rural teachers to attract more people to stay," said Ye Rensun, director of the Jiangxi education bureau.
