Yunnan ethnic villagers in China are famous for their creativity and techniques in embroideries. Stitch by stitch, using threads made with natural dyes, they interpret nature and their daily surroundings into embroideries with great eye, care, joy and pride. Motifs of flowers, butterflies, architectural characteristics, legends and folklores are often the themes of design and each is unique with no two pieces being alike.
