As one of the first folk printing and dyeing techniques to be included in the Intangible Cultural Heritage List of Shandong Province, Yimeng Colour Printed Fabric is widely loved by the people of northern China for its rich and varied motifs, exaggerated bold colours and strong decorative qualities. Today, however, the Yimeng colour print is constrained by technology and form, and the patterns and colours are too traditional. It has become difficult to meet people's living and aesthetic needs, and there is a serious heritage crisis, and even some patterns and designs have begun to be gradually lost with the departure of the older generation of craftsmen. Therefore, we need to conduct an in-depth study of it from the perspective of inheritance and innovation. By systematically sorting out and analysing the compositional features of traditional colour prints, the Fuzzy analytic hierarchy process is used to summarise people's perceptual value expectations of their constituent elements. In this way, the basic principles and methods of introducing new designs into the composition elements of the colourful prints are identified, and the traditional elements are naturally integrated into modern products. This will gradually promote the integration of Yimeng colour prints with modern products and lifestyles, and give Yimeng colour prints more impetus for development.
