Lonely Planet review

Peruse an exquisite collection of minority handicrafts from China’s southwest, most of which are secondhand (ie not made for the tourist trade) and personally selected by the owner Liu Xiaolan, a Guìzhōu native. Items for sale include embroidered wall hangings (some of which were originally baby carriers), sashes, shoes and hats, as well as silver jewellery.

The butterfly, a homonym for ‘mother’ in the Miao language, is a popular motif.
