Amazing Straw Art from China

Straw is an agricultural by-product, the dry stalk of a cereal plant, after the grain or seed has been removed. In times gone by, it was regarded as a useful by-product of the harvest, but with the advent of the combine harvester, straw has become more burdensome to agriculture.

While back to China, people there still use straw to make lots of useful things… Like hat, bag, rope, sandals, decoration and etc., They also have “straw festival” which exhibits some interesting things made by straw. LINK
