Description of Our Community: The hosiery industry of Shetou Township has developed for more than 40years. After the restoration of Taiwan, Zheng Zheng and his son, Zheng Xue, came to Shetou and brought the first hand-held hosiery machine from Shanghai. They set up “Victory Hosiery Factory,” and led the villagers to make socks together. Gradually, the entire village was transformed from agriculture to textile industry, and almost every family take sock making as their family business.

Project Description: After the impact of globalization, OH9 turned from OEM to brand creation, which is a microcosm of the economic difficulties of Taiwan's SMEs. The person in charge, Li Donglin, used to be an athlete who had a dream of becoming a volleyball player. However, he changed his goal due to a serious car accident and returned back to the local industry. He has gone through international OEM and health problem. He also made efforts to make his products equipped with international competitiveness.
