The major concern in this study is the issue on the revival of weaving craft for the Pan-tayaltribein Hualien. This research investigates the interlocking process of weaving labor, cultural identity, and market. More specifically, the dimensions of production and consumption are observed. The dimension of production is related to the creator’s body skills, family memory, and consideration of use value as well as exchange value. The dimension of consumption refers to the changing identity of the consumers/users, as well as the intervention of local organization and government. Under this process, the mechanism for continuing the craft of weaving, by which the tribal community could be renewed, is pursued.
