Our producer Pu hongxue - a Qiang minority lady from Beichuan who makes lovely hand-embroidered products - came to visit us at Blue Sheep!
Hongxue was trapped during the 2008 earthquake under rubble in her classrom for 72 hours, which led to the amputation of her left arm and right leg. Despite this, after she graduated form university, she took an interest in preserving her cultural heritage; namely the Qiang embroidery which she learnt as a child. Despite her limitations she turns out beautiful products (designed by herself) which she meticulously hand-embroiders.
We were excited to finally meet Pu Hongxue in person, having stocked her products for some time now!
Thanks for visiting, Hongxue! Come again soon!
