Embroidered Cloth

Nuosu embroidery is another traditional handicraft of the Nuosu people—however, unlike lacquerware, embroidery is done almost exclusively by women. Although fewer girls in the towns and cities learn to embroider with skill, most young girls have had some experience decorating traditional clothes for festive occasions, and some continue on to become true artists with the needle.
