Our overseas offices are an important part of Pro-Stretch Trims International, and we love to see what our staff are getting up to in their social life.
Recently our China office have been celebrating the 100th Birthday of a local lady called Yinqing Jiang, a beautiful name, typically meaning ‘Pure Silver’

There is a famous Chinese saying: Thousand year old trees are often found in the world, but a hundred year old person are rare.

Its is customary to have big celebrations in China, especially for landmark centenary birthdays., which is a huge achievement in life, and should be celebrated with vigour.



The villages join together to celebrate life, and share health and happiness, offering good wishes for everyone.

“All the married daughters in the same village will wear the same red colour dress”
