Master embroider Wan Mei Du from Guizhou organizes the women in the village for blackwork embroidery, a cross-stitch technique that is uniquely designed to give the exact motifs on both sides of the cloth. This cuff panel prints a picture of field of chili pepper flowers. 

With a carefully planned sustainable production cycle, the indigo initiative at our partnering fair trade textile supplier, Living Blue, is integrated into the agricultural cycle where fermentation discharge is used to replace chemical nitrogen fertilizer.

Empower these community to keep the heritage craft alive through this lovely piece.
