Villagers place textile products in order, May 28.

The Ximeng autonomous county of Wa minority in Pu’er city, Yunan province, has a specialty out of textile-making.

Its ethnic products, such as cloth, cape and carpet, reach both domestic and international markets.

Yangluo village, in particular, develops a local economy relying on hand-made textiles. With the support of county government, a folk costume museum has been built to provide design and technical trainings for local women.

This plays a vital role in improving local employment and increasing household incomes.
