The  black cotton fabric for this airy pleated dress was hand-woven in the homes of the Dong families in Zhaoxing village. They used natural indigo and green persimmon to dye the fabric black, then sent it to the nearby Buyi people for hand-pleating using an ancient steaming method.

The 3-ring metal necklace with engraved flowers was hand-pounded by an elder Miao silversmith in his little studio along the river. The materials were created by three different ethnic minority groups, so it is very multi-cultural from the local perspective.
