Bamboo and willow branch are commonly used to make furniture and, occasionally, simple building structures in China.
Binzhou, in China’s east province Shandong, is well-known for its handmade willow products.
And now a village in Binzhou is building an e-commerce trading centre, that looks like made of willow branches, to sell its willow products online.
A Chinese village’s e-commerce centre for selling villagers’ handmade willow products online looks like as if made of willow branches.
The e-commerce centre’s facade is cladded with precast triangle units and assembled in a way that makes the building look like a giant version of a willow product that the villagers are selling online.
What will be a better advertising than using an entire building itself?
These are some typical handmade willow items the villagers in Beizhou traditionally produce.
