Handweaving fabric

Buyi's handwoven fabric

Buyi minority, one of the 49 tribes that inhabit the southwest province of Guizhou, China 3000 years ago, has a reputation for hand-weaving skills. They used to make the fabrics for self-sufficient use and trade to other tribes. The diversity of the fabric types in terms of patterns and weaving texture reveals their wisdom and laborious traditional virtue.
The patterns design, as always, the tribe gets the inspiration from the nature. The slow lifestyle in the mountain allows them to take time to appreciate the natural beauties around their living place and then transfer into the creative textile art design.
