Shen Shuan-chuan at the university's Graduate School of Visual Communication Design was selected as the winner with best towel designs among 428 designers at a towel design competition held by a famous Taiwanese textile company.
Shen said he was glad to win the first prize on the eve of his graduation. He plans to make good use of the prize money on a short study trip to Japan soon.
Ku Mo-shen, vice president at the well-known towel company said that Taiwan used to be the world's top supplier of towel products, including face towels, hand towels, bath towels, washcloths, beach towels, medical towels, and other household textiles.
However, the towel companies in Taiwan are now lagging behind competitors in neighboring Asian nations in terms of hardware, production, equipment and software.
Ku said one major purpose for his company holding the design contest is to help boost investment by textile companies to modernize their facilities and to beef up international competitiveness.
The other major goal is to help cultivate more design talents who can help design better towel products for customers around the world.
