Hand made by the Lisu People of Yunnan

The Lisu are one of Yunnan’s many ethnic groups. There are approx. 750,000 Lisu in the province and they have lived there for thousands of years. Being reliant on fragile forms of agriculture their lives are frequently disrupted by ecological disaster, traditionally relying heavily on trade for income. Threads of Yunnan help the Lisu to exist in the modern world opening their traditional skills to the global market.
