Enthusiasts of Chinese culture in Malta can now immerse themselves in the secrets of hanfu costumes, a style of clothing traditionally worn by the Han people, thanks to a new cultural platform dabbed "hanfu costume society" that was launched at the China Cultural Center in Malta on Friday.

The initiative is expected to further enhance cultural exchanges between China and Malta and showcase the richness of traditional Chinese culture, Yuan Yuan, director of the China Cultural Center, told Xinhua at Friday's launch event.

Hanfu clothing is renowned for its distinctive design, exquisite craftsmanship, and its profound cultural significance. It has been re-discovered by young Chinese people, with more and more of them opting to wear it.

Yu Cheng, who has lived in Malta for nearly five years, has decided to share her carefully collected more than 40 exquisite hanfu sets when the China Cultural Center hosts Hanfu-themed activities. On such occasions, participants will have a chance to time-travel by trying on these rare traditional garments.
